IP Master Class: Show Don't Tell: Visual Patent Trials

April 11, 2006

Are you trusting your cases to BLIND JUSTICE?   For many judges and jurors, their primary means of accessing and processing information is through their eyes.  They process information visually.  Lawyers proclaim themselves to be masters of words, but adding demonstratives can enormously increase the power of your arguments at trial.  The problem is that getting and keeping visuals in front of the jury or judge requires a thorough grounding in the rules of evidence, the art of visual storytelling, and conformity with Federal Circuit precedent.  In this session, a top tier patent trial lawyer and two creative artists specializing in patent trials share their insights--sometimes using the magic of a teleconference to demonstrate their points.
