Abstract:

This chapter deals with courtroom trials and the role played by the judge, witnesses, attorney, plaintiff and defendants in these trials. The trial is where both sides actually cross swords to obtain a decision by the court. To prepare for the trial the attorney should consider the use of an exhibit to help the jury understand his data. Excellent presentations can be prepared with Microsoft PowerPoint. He should make sure that the presentation is large enough to be seen by the jury and clear enough to be readily understood. Expert witnesses sit in the spectator section until they are called by the bailiff to testify, at which time they walk to the witness stand to take the oath. A pretrial conference with the client-attorney and perhaps the client is very important. Finally, a dress rehearsal should be held, and ideally videotaped, to schedule and refine expert presentations. During the trial the witnesses are generally prohibited from talking to anyone about what is going on in the courtroom until the witness has testified. In most jurisdictions, the subject of the cross-examination is limited to those matters covered during direct examination. The expert should keep in mind that he will not win or lose the case; it is the client-attorney who will do that.
