Microsoft PowerPoint Power Tips for Legal Users

PowerPoint's use in the legal profession, both in and out of the courtroom, has become nearly invaluable. The course specifically focuses on presentations that are unique to lawyers. The topics contrast starkly with every popular PowerPoint manual on the market today, none of which teaches the features used specifically for the presentation of evidence in the courtroom or how to build a flow chart to explain the benefits of an AB Trust. Just a few of the ways in which PowerPoint can help legal professionals include opening statements and closing arguments in trial, presentations at mediation or arbitration, and presenting complicated legal concepts to clients so they can understand the legal issues involved in their matter. For judges, more and more are using PowerPoint to introduce rules and protocols in the courtroom, and instructions to the jury.
