Introduction and Use of Exhibits

Exhibits have a tremendous impact on the jury. Once entered, they become the centre of attention and make an immediate and lasting impression. An advocate, therefore, must learn how to establish the foundation for the entry of an exhibit, and also how to use the exhibit effectively at trial. 

This series segment discusses the proper procedure to be followed when producing an exhibit at trial, the requirements for introducing into evidence a variety of exhibits commonly encountered in a trial, and the effective use of exhibits in court.
