The Basic Purpose of Demonstrative Exhibits
Demonstrative evidence should be used to clearly or memorably convey the theme or concept. There are five broad purposes for the use of demonstrative evidence: (I) to organize facts and themes, (2) to explain scientific or technical information, (3) to make your facts and themes “sticky” (i.e., more memorable), (4) to reinforce key concepts or themes and (5) to refresh jurors’ memories in long trials. Demonstrative evidence is not a substitute for testimonial evidence.
