The Use of Technology in the Courtroom: Bringing Your Case to Life for the Judge and Jury

An engaging, easy-to-understand argument is key to success in any type of trial or hearing. The use of technology in the courtroom allows attorneys to use a variety of media to build the strongest case possible for their clients. The use of a mixture of media, such as videos, audio clips, and graphics, makes it much more likely that jurors will be receptive to the attorney’s arguments.

In addition, many jurors simply expect to see some form of technology in the courtroom, thanks to popular shows like CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. Attorneys who use technology in conjunction with their statements and questioning witnesses are often seen as more credible, professional, and organized in the courtroom.

However, many attorneys simply do not know how to use technology in the courtroom. Technological advances occur every day—and since attorneys’ primary focus is on changes in the law, they may be unaware as to the technological tools that are available for their cases.

This is where it is beneficial to hire a trial support and technology company. While the attorneys focus on the legal aspects of the case, these companies determine what types of technology are best to emphasize their positions.

Effective Types of Trial Technology

Visual Aids

There are a variety of visual aids that may be used in the courtroom. These aids are especially useful in complex cases, such as those involving medical malpractice. Jurors may have a difficult time understanding what went wrong in a surgery, for example—but images that explain the surgery and alleged mistakes a doctor made can help tremendously.

Trial graphics are a popular form of trial technology and encompass a variety of items. Infographics, chronologies, graphs, diagrams, animations, and document call-outs are just a few examples of the trial graphics that are available to use in the modern courtroom.

Exhibit boards are a classic visual aid. These may be used to enlarge documents, photographs, and other pieces of evidence. They are especially effective for pieces of evidence attorneys want to emphasize and allow to remain on display for the judge and jury for a longer period of time.

Videos are highly effective in trials and hearings, whether it is security camera footage or a clip from a deposition. With proper editing, a video may become one of the most powerful pieces of evidence submitted in the courtroom.

Audio Aids

Audio aids, such as recorded phone calls, sound clips, and similar items are all useful in the courtroom. However, when using audio aids, it is extremely important to take the layout and acoustics of the courtroom into account. Trial support and technology companies know how to present audio clips in such a way that they are clear and loud enough for the judge and jury to hear and understand.
