Strategic Considerations for Presenting Expert Testimony at Trial: Live vs. Zoom

Event Description

Online registration for this event has closed. To register email Kara at

Join a panel of judges as they speak about the presentation of expert witness testimony via live remote (Zoom). While there was some initial opposition to presenting expert testimony via Zoom, judges have noticed that counsel are increasingly finding this an acceptable alternative to live in-person, or sworn pre-recorded testimony. This panel of judges will discuss why live presentation of remote expert testimony is a) cost effective; b) a great surrogate for live in-person testimony; c) much better than canned pre-trial static video; and d) that the court technology works. 


Judge David Hermerding, 9th Judicial District

Judge Laurie Miller, 4th Judicial District

Judge Rachel Sullivan, Assistant Chief Judge, 6th Judicial District

Judge Amy Doll, 8th Judicial District

Moderator: Judge Thomas Gilligan, 2nd Judicial District
