Dines’ Exhibits Hints
Stand to the side of the exhibit when explaining it in order not to block it from the judge’s view. When speaking, speak directly to the jury, letting your eyes roam to several of them and never only to one.
Encourage the jury to continually look at the exhibit while you focus your attention towards them at the same time.
Leave your demonstrative evidence uncovered while the opposing side is presenting its case or during cross-examination so that it will make a continuing impression on the judge and jury.
