Sonya Hamlin will present the 5th in a series of webcasts based on her book, Now What Makes Juries Listen.  Participants will learn about a variety of topics, including:

1. Getting new information and staying tuned in is all about speed and ease for today's television-viewing, computer-using public. So making your trial’s messages visual is absolutely crucial for your jurors. People today need and expect the visual approach to explain any new idea, to be able to picture something they haven't experienced, even just to get interested and involved.

2. Visualizing ideas and facts is especially important with your multi-cultural, bilingual jurors. And today's no- exemption juries need you to reach across a wide range of sophistication and knowledge in order to keep everyone interested and on the same page

3. This chapter will help you learn the basics of how and why to make messages visual and will help make you a better communicator and keep your juries tuned in and well-informed. You will learn how to make your case visual and make it -and you -more persuasive.

4. Gaining and keeping your jurors' attention - which visuals do brilliantly -  greatly increases jurors' involvement, concentration , and understanding, something today's juries have trouble with as you ask them to tune into your case.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

• Why Make it Visual: The Effect on your Jurors 

• What Jurors Need  from You Today

• How Visuals Support your Case, Sustain Interest, Aid Understanding and Memory
• The Art of Visual Presentation: New Skills; What Works and What Doesn’t

• How to Create Clarity , Impact and Persuasion Visually

• Visual Formats: Which Ones to Use and Why

• Presenting Your Visuals: How to Make Them be Most Effective
