We just learned that a blog post that we wrote recently was named the “Pick of the Week” by LitigationWorld, a popular email newsletter for litigators, litigation support professionals, and corporate counsel who manage litigation. This is the seventh A2L Consulting post since 2011 to be so honored.
For each issue of LitigationWorld, the editorial team there reviews hundreds of articles published during the previous week. From these articles, one is selected as LitigationWorld Pick of the Week. The article is selected because the editors there believe that it is a must-read for anyone interested in litigation.
The article that won this honor was entitled “12 Reasons Litigation Graphics are More Complicated Than You Think.”
Many awards that are given out these days are meaningless because marketing can play a role in determining who wins. By contrast, those who win the LitigationWorld Pick of the Week award don't even know they're in the running and cannot influence the editorial team. That’s what makes this award meaningful to us.
The winning article, not surprisingly, lists 12 reasons that litigation graphics are more complicated than one might think. Among them: Litigation graphics must be more than merely electronic versions of printed documents; real litigation graphics experts are storytelling experts as well; and litigation graphics experts understand the psychology of a jury and how a litigator can use psychology to his or her advantage.
This prize-winning post is only one example. Our blog is full of interesting and useful thoughts about trials, juries and litigation. The American Bar Association recently named A2L's Litigation Consulting Report blog one of the eight best in the litigation industry. Below is a list of the seven articles that LitigationWorld has named Pick of the Week.
