The faculty member will discuss the necessity from the beginning of the case- from charging forward to “always be closing”; to focus on the reasons for imposing a finding of guilt. The attention step, the law, the argument, the exit line, and rebuttal will be discussed. He will focus on the importance of using real, demonstrative, or illustrative evidence in closing arguments to increase the persuasion of prosecution/factual theory to the jurors using presentation software technology. He will demonstrate techniques for audio and video evidence such as 911 calls and audio and video-taped witness statements and confessions. He will provide specific suggestions of important evidence to look for and gather to assist you in recreating the crime scene for the triers of fact. The faculty member will also discuss recent attacks to the admissibility of high-tech visual evidence and offer strategies to avoid or overcome these challenges. The faculty member will also describe techniques to utilize to prevent the technology software from “upstaging” you and how to prepare alternative backup systems. Some issues that will be covered include: the strength of the evidence of guilt, reasonable inferences and drawing upon the evidence presented to make those reasonable inferences which support the State’s theory of the case, addressing any defense mitigating circumstances, and overcoming issues that may give rise to jury nullification.
