Date: Wednesday, July 28, 2021, 2:00 – 2:45 PM EST

Webinar Description:

As we move toward a paperless world, finding a way to organize and use materials at trial can be challenging. This webinar demonstrates how you can use an Excel spreadsheet to organize and synthesize discovery, create hyperlinks to quickly access audio, video, photographic exhibits, take notes during jury selection and trial, prepare and execute direct and cross-examinations for witnesses, and have all the court filings in one place at your fingertips. It is the virtual trial notebook you can create using an Excel spreadsheet.
