The iPad is transforming the way lawyers try cases; where before they had to rely on trial technologists or assistants to manage technology at trial, now lawyers can walk into court and pick a jury, present evidence, and conduct research themselves, all on a tablet device. In iPad for Litigators 2.0, technology expert Tom Mighell and trial lawyer Jamie Moncus build off of last year’s best selling iPad for Litigators program, showing you how to take your litigation to the next level with live video demonstrations of the latest developments for the iPad.
In this session, you'll learn the steps you need to take to try a lawsuit with an iPad, and the ways the iPad can help when you are preparing for trial, including:
Conducting discovery - gathering and reviewing documents, taking and annotating depositions
Picking and monitoring a jury with just your tablet
Presenting evidence to a judge or jury
Taking notes, sending messages and other iPad productivity apps to use during trial
Accessories to use with the iPad in court
Practical tips to ensure your trial runs smoothly
