We are very proud to have achieved a milestone and to be able to share it with our readers. In 2011, we launched our popular litigation-focused blog, The Litigation Consulting Report, and we recently published our 200th article for the blog.
In that time, tens of thousands of different people in the legal industry – partners in major law firms, in-house counsel, consultants, expert witnesses, graphic designers, and many others – have turned to the blog for interesting stories about real trials, for the latest research on what works and what doesn’t, for insights into jury psychology, and for good advice on trial techniques. I’m thrilled that the blog has been so well received. There are very few blogs like it on the Internet, if any.
To celebrate, we are releasing this e-book of the top 20 articles as judged by the readership of the articles over the past two years. You will notice that the topics are wide-ranging but generally fall into our three key areas of expertise: Trial Consulting, Litigation Graphics and Courtroom Technology.
We haven’t been afraid to challenge conventional wisdom about presenting information at trial, and I’m not surprised that among the top 20 articles are those that say that PowerPoint is often significantly misused by trial lawyers, that other presentation software is often preferable, and that bullet points are usually not a good way to get your ideas across.
To be honest, the identity of the most-read article (The Top 50 Twitter Accounts for Litigators) is a surprise to me, but I suppose it reflects the growing use of social media to disseminate valuable content. After all, a great many of you probably found this book, or at least some of its constituent parts, on Twitter.
Other popular blog posts are less surprising and indeed encouraging like storytelling in the courtroom, the meaning of color, the best practices for mock trials, and problems in the use of demonstrative evidence.
I hope that you enjoy this book and take real value from it. I would sincerely welcome your feedback. If you are not a subscriber of our blog, please become one by clicking here.
