At many trials, jurors are presented with a massive amount of information.  Legal definitions, scientific jargon, factual disputes, faulty memories… sometimes all in the same case!  As prosecutors, we need to help the jury process information in the moment, and help them recall that information later in the jury room.  This CLE considers classic stories of epic length, and the tricks the authors use to help the audience recall important information long after it was first presented.
The presentation will cover:
1)    The “lots of information” problem
2)    Stories to Aid Memory
a.    Story of the facts
b.    Stories to demonstrate a point
c.    Metaphor to reveal meaning
3)    Repetition to Aid Memory
4)    Catchphrase to Aid Memory
5)    Visual effects to Aid Memory
