We are in the age of visual information, and trial presentation is increasingly essential for lawyers who present their case before a jury.
Visual content plays a role in every part of life. Psychologists who have studied the way people communicate and learn have discovered that approximately 65% of the population (2/3 of any jury pool) are “visual learners.”
Because of this, they process new information presented in a visual format more effectively than when the same information is presented to them verbally. Researchers have found:
- Eyes can register 36,000 visual messages per hour
- 90% of information transmitted to the brain is visual
- Visuals are processed 60,000X faster than text in the brain.
In an interesting contrast, many lawyers are actually auditory/hearing or kinesthetic people. That is, they tend to process information more effectively by hearing or experiencing information. Therefore, most lawyers prefer to communicate by speaking rather than by showing.
This means that the typical courtroom will have attorneys who best communicate through verbal explanations, but a jury comprised mostly of visual learners, for whom spoken explanations may be much harder to follow than a visual presentation.
How do we bridge this gap so that judge and jury can visualize your spoken argument?
