Defendant Reginald McKay, a mentally disturbed American who became a "home-grown" Islamic terrorist, poisoned members of a Jewish temple during Passover seder. After one of the The Trial Presentation Companion: A Step-by-Step Guide to Presenting Electronic Evidence in the Courtroom, written by award-winning legal technologist Shannon Lex Bales, is NITA's first-ever, comprehensive how-to manual on running electronic evidence in the courtroom. This face-saving guide will help you and your firm expand your comfort zone in working with all the bits and pieces--laptops, trial presentation software, document cameras, audio-visual components, the puzzling array of cords and cables--that are increasingly essential when presenting electronic evidence in court in the modern era. Checklists and guides are included to help your firm create a technology plan for trial and recognize where opposing firms may attempt less-than-reputable technical tactics, such as burden shifting, to throw a monkey wrench in your trial plan. For the judiciary, the book presents a warts-and-all view of trial technology and discusses reasonable presentation obligations by firms to the court and how the court can ensure more efficient technological processes and fewer problems in the courtroom. Part One, Trial Presentation in Theory, is just that: a theoretical explanation, in plain (and often tongue-in-cheek) English, about why expert trial technologists do what they do during pretrial and in court: how to organize and name exhibit files, choose the best software for your needs, build a trial kit of equipment to take to court, comply with the Trial Management Order, develop an effective workflow, cultivate relationships that provide mutual support in court and out, and much more. Part Two, Trial Presentation in Practice, shows you, step by illustrated step, how you, too, can bring that same game to your own legal team as you huddle for trial. Even if you don't know an HDMI port from a VGA and have never set up a folder system on your server before, The Trial Presentation Companion will show you how, and before you know it, you'll be running the show like you were born to it. This book is suitable for everyone from judges and law firm partners and associates to law students, budding trial technologists, and paralegals.

Childrens Advocacy Center professionals face extraordinary challenges as they dedicate their working lives to helping children who have made allegations of sexual and physical abuse. Effective CACs employ a multi-disciplinary team approach to the investigation, treatment, and prevention of child sexual abuse. But we know that child abuse allegations are often settled in the courtroom, and the road toward the courtroom can be confusing and complicated for CAC professionals and their centers, which often lack qualified and competent legal counsel to pave their wave. This book is a collection of Legal Letters written by Attorney Andrew Agatston to CACs, child advocates and detectives that establishes a path toward becoming Legal Eagles for the children they serve. "In practical understandable prose, Andrew Agatston addresses many of the legal challenges facing Childrens Advocacy Centers. Executive directors, forensic interviewers and others who work in or with a CAC will find this book to be of great assistance." -- Victor Vieth, Director, National Child Protection Training Center "The Childrens Advocacy Center model has revolutionized the United States resposne system to child sexual abuse, and this shift has dramatically impacted the legal systems response to these children, the programs which serve them, and the records associated with this service. This book provides an outstanding overview of numerous challenging legal situations which CACs may face in this environment. While focused on the perspective of current practice in the State of Georgia, these challenges are universal, and this comprehensive compilation, written in an easy to understand format, is a must have for every CAC and its legal counsel." -- Chris Newlin, MS LPC, Executive Director, National Childrens Advocacy Center
