    A special unit of the Chief State's Attorney's Office is training prosecutors around the state to create and use hard-hitting multi-media presentations to hone their arguments and win over juries, the state's top prosecutor said.

    The techniques first drew attention statewide in 2002 in the Michael Skakel murder trial, when prosecutors used computer technology for a compelling display of crime scene photos, diagrams and other evidence.

    We're essentially trying to get lawyers to learn how to communicate more effectively with jurors," said Brian Carney, president of the Boston-based WIN Interactive. "In their law school training, attorneys are taught to communicate verbally and we try to get them to communicate by being more visual."

    This is a great idea, some information is "lost" on jurors.

    So present it in a way that they are able absorb.

    People use computers, video's, and watch TV, so a multi-media presentation is a great idea.

    Gives a visual impact and reaches people who are "visual learners", like me.
