State Bar Looks at Digital Media in the Courtroom on Oct. 28

Albuquerque, N.M. – Technology plays a large role in the courtroom in presenting audio and video evidence to a jury. Attorneys must know how to competently use the equipment and present such evidence effectively.

Digital Media in the Courtroom will be held from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m., Oct. 28 at the State Bar Center in Albuquerque. The State Bar Technology Committee is sponsoring the continuing legal education event which will show attorneys how to present digital media such as cell phone pictures and movies to a judge and jury.

The special guest speaker is Michael J. Lewis, an attorney with the 2nd Judicial District Attorney's Office. Lewis acts as a consultant on trial presentations.

The State Bar of New Mexico was organized in 1886 and is composed of more than 8500 members. Its purposes are to aid the courts in administering justice and preserving the rule of law, and to foster a high standard of integrity and competence within the legal profession.
