2018 Law & Technology Series: Electronic Courtroom Presentation

August 2-4, 2018
Long Beach, California

 

The Defender Services Office, Training Division (DSO-TD) is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 2018 Law & Technology Series: Electronic Courtroom Presentation. It will take place August 2-4, 2018, at the Hilton Hotel Long Beach in Long Beach, California.

 

The Law & Technology Series: Electronic Courtroom Presentation Workshop (ECP) exposes CJA panel and federal public/community defender attorneys and professional staff to the legal, strategic, and technological considerations involved with electronically presenting information in the federal courtroom during trial and hearings. This two-and-a-half-day program uses a combination of plenary presentations and small group, hands-on instruction. In the smaller breakout groups, attendees will practice direct and cross-examination, opening statements, and closing arguments, using Trial Director and PowerPoint software which are well suited for electronically presenting information in the courtroom.

 

To best participate at this program, all attendees are required to provide their own laptop computer and strongly encouraged to bring their own case materials (hearing/trial, small/large). In order to be considered for admission, all applicants are required to fill-out and submit a short skill set survey before their registration request is completed. NOTE: The litigation support software programs used in this workshop are designed to work on Windows operating systems (as opposed to Mac). If accepted, you must bring a laptop running Windows, or a Mac laptop running a virtualized copy of Windows.

 

ECP is designed for, and attendance is limited to Criminal Justice Act (CJA) practitioners, both panel attorneys and federal defender staff (attorney and non-attorney). There is no tuition, and materials will be provided to participants free of charge. ECP will begin Thursday, August 2, 2018, and will midday Saturday, August 4, 2018. Participants are expected to stay for the entire program. For questions about the substance of the workshop, please contact Juval Scott at This email address is being protected from spambots.
