Litigation and Trial Presentation Technology

UCLA Extension is offering a brand-new online course, entitled Litigation and Trial Presentation Technology, which will be taught by Shannon Bales, of Munger, Tolles and Olson. I am always happy to hear of new and interesting opportunities to receive education and training in the technology side of law -- something that's just not that easy to find. Plus, online course access means you don't have to take the 405, the 10, the 110 and/or the 5 to get there (if you've ever commuted in Los Angeles, you know exactly what I mean. If not, you should probably consider yourself lucky).

I had the opportunity to preview the first couple weeks of his course materials, and can say that it does indeed look to be coming together nicely. Bales has been doing litigation support and trial presentation for many years, and has a wealth of experience to draw from. 

As a bonus, for those who are in the L.A. area, Bales is offering a "hands-on" lab session at his office. The advertised course fee is $595, and should be a great investment in your career. You can learn more about Shannon on LinkedIn:

If you happen to be in San Diego, attorney Jeff Bennion offers a similar Trial Presentation course at UCSD as part of the Litigation Technology Management Certificate program. Here's his LinkedIn profile:

Also of mention, Litigation-Tech has again been named as one of California's Best Courtroom Presentation providers! Thanks to all who voted. There are many excellent Trial Presentation firms out there, so we are truly grateful to be named as one of the best.


  1. The link to the UCLA Extension course does not appear to work, and a search for the course on the UCLA Extension site does not show the course.

    1. Thanks for letting us know. I will see if I can find out what happened - it is definitely not listed now. I'll ask Shannon Bales.
