“Almost every trial now involves the use of technology by lawyers. The extent to which lawyers use technology at trial, of course, varies according to the differences in particular cases and the preferences of individual lawyers, but technology is now a fact of every trial lawyer’s life.

The following materials seek to assist lawyers in identifying and understanding available technology and using it to improve performance at trial.”
