Dines’ Exhibits Hints
Keep the number of exhibits to a minimum to prevent confusion. Refer to only the most important issues of the case. In fact, do not use more than ten minutes to explain a chart, as this is about the average attention span of most juries.
Provide only one message per exhibit.
Make sure that your exhibit supports and explains your opinion and conclusions.
Make sure that your exhibit is accurate and relevant, not misleading or difficult to understand.
Keep the contents of the exhibit simple and clearly organized in order that people viewing it can easily identify and understand what they are seeing.
