CodeX on Demonstratives

★ ★ ★ ★ Stanford Law Blawg Rates NITA’s Demonstratives eBook

CodeX, Stanford Law’s technology-oriented blawg, recently gave high marks to Demonstratives: Making Effective Graphics for Trial, a new eBook written by Los Angeles-based trial technologist and NITA author John Cleaves.

CodeX Book Club, Chapter 17—John Cleaves: Demonstratives

We’re thrilled to see John, a trial technology attorney and the manager of the Trial Technology Consulting team at Latham & Watkins LLP, receive recognition from one of the top law school tech programs in the country. He’s written an eBook that shows you not only how to create interesting demonstrative exhibits your jurors won’t soon forget, but also—crucially—how those exhibits fit into the narrative you’ll tell them about your client’s case.

Believe it or not, all of the graphics and animations you see in this video were created by John in PowerPoint.

Demonstratives will show you, step by step, how you, too, can create similar exhibits that will elevate the way you advocate for your clients in the courtroom.

Congratulations, John!

Many thanks to Monica Bay at CodeX for both her review and permission to share her review.
