Documents at Trial
I received an old book a few days back which looks really interesting. The book is Tangible Evidence: How To Use Exhibits at Trial. A copy can be purchased on Amazon. To me, this is one of the things I don't see many lawyers do very well. All this time is spent getting documents in discovery and then I have seen attorneys with no clue what to do with them after that. The book also goes through creating documents for trial (i.e. charts, graphs, summaries, etc.). I have a trial in a few week where there is literally close to 2300 documents from various sources that have to be introduced as exhibits. As such, we are looking at various ways to introduce the documents into a workable format.
