Today's Paralegal Mentor audio tip focuses on planning for emergencies at trial.
Paralegals are in charge of covering all the bases, particularly when assisting at trial. I was reminded of this when Lynne DeVenny and I interviewed Ted Brooks, Founder & CEO of Litigation-Tech LLC, on this months Paralegal Voice produced by Legal Talk Network.
Ted discussed the latest in Court Technology for Paralegals. He is one of the most widely-recognized figures in Trial Presentation and Legal Technology. He is a successful high-profile Trial Consultant, author of the Court and Trial Technology Blawg which I highly recommend you check out and subscribe to…and winner of the Law Technology News Award for Most Innovative Use of Technology During a Trial.
With that background I certainly listened when he talked about planning for emergencies at trial.
As Ted said, trial itself is an emergency so all planning should be designed around that. You go to a trial as fully prepared as possible but you always have a Plan B --- and maybe Plans C and D --- just in case something goes wrong.Follow this link to listen to this week's audio tip for some suggestions for your Plan B. It takes just 3 minutes.
Remember...I'm dedicated to your success!
