The Best Strategies to Present Your Case In Arbitration, by Derek Ryan, Cogent Legal Blog
Arbitrations are a great forum for the use of the graphics, animations and trial technologies. Depending on the arbitrator(s)’ familiarity with technologies, attorneys can often submit briefs, exhibit lists and other critical documents electronically.
Consider, too, the fact that arbitrations are usually held in meeting rooms smaller than most courtrooms. Having 70 boxes of exhibits in the arbitration room will make you feel surrounded by paper. The more you can digitize and display this material electronically, the better.
