The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer. For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant. Although the terms “paralegal” and “legal assistant” were once used interchangeably, they now refer to two different professions. In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms. A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

Court records have been migrating from paper to electronic formats for several years now. This shift toward electronic filing, or e-filing, enables legal professionals to easily submit documents to multiple court systems and reduces court costs. In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018. This convenient and cost-saving project will certainly impact filing procedure across the state. Let’s take a closer look at Indiana’s impending e-filing model. (more…)

It is very likely in your adult life that you will be summoned for jury duty, but will you make it to the box? Jury selection is an intriguing process. Judges and lawyers must make seemingly cursory assessments of human nature and biases in order to construct an effective panel. This raises the questions: What makes a juror either ideal or problematic? How is a jury selected? (more…)

A house fire is one of the most devastating disasters that can affect a family. Imagining someone’s home, possessions and memories going up in smoke is a horrible, sobering thought. The potential damage, however, is magnified when that home belongs to a court reporter. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over. In the past, it was impressive to perform a “paper dump,” displaying piles and piles of documents in the deposition room. Today, however, it is much more professional and efficient to make use of streamlined technology. (more…)

Did you know that court reporters may record the audio of a deposition? Technology developed for computer-aided translation (CAT) software allows for the simultaneous digital audio recording of judicial proceedings, often referred to as audio synchronization or backup audio media (BAM). But while court rules give specific guidelines and requirements regarding video recordings, there is no clear guidance regarding audio recordings. (more…)

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

Photo and video evidence can be extremely effective in legal proceedings. Potential evidence is everywhere and readily available with the proliferation of surveillance cameras and smartphones in everyone’s pockets. With this availability, every legal claim seems to incorporate photos or video. But is photo and video evidence always admissible in court? What are the pitfalls to be aware of when using such evidence? (more…)

Court reporting is not always advertised as the most thrilling career. A career in court reporting can be both personally and professionally fulfilling, but individuals looking for adventure do not often imagine themselves as reporters. As a matter of fact, the court reporting industry offers incredible opportunities for global jet-setting. If you are interested in a lucrative, rewarding career that allows you to travel all over the world, you should consider becoming an international court reporter. (more…)

With this availability, every legal claim seems to incorporate photos or video. But is photo and video evidence always admissible in court? What are the pitfalls to be aware of when using such evidence? (more…)

Court reporting is not always advertised as the most thrilling career. A career in court reporting can be both personally and professionally fulfilling, but individuals looking for adventure do not often imagine themselves as reporters. As a matter of fact, the court reporting industry offers incredible opportunities for global jet-setting. If you are interested in a lucrative, rewarding career that allows you to travel all over the world, you should consider becoming an international court reporter. (more…)

The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer. For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant. Although the terms “paralegal” and “legal assistant” were once used interchangeably, they now refer to two different professions. In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms. A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

Court records have been migrating from paper to electronic formats for several years now. This shift toward electronic filing, or e-filing, enables legal professionals to easily submit documents to multiple court systems and reduces court costs. In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018. This convenient and cost-saving project will certainly impact filing procedure across the state. Let’s take a closer look at Indiana’s impending e-filing model. (more…)

It is very likely in your adult life that you will be summoned for jury duty, but will you make it to the box? Jury selection is an intriguing process. Judges and lawyers must make seemingly cursory assessments of human nature and biases in order to construct an effective panel. This raises the questions: What makes a juror either ideal or problematic? How is a jury selected? (more…)

A house fire is one of the most devastating disasters that can affect a family. Imagining someone’s home, possessions and memories going up in smoke is a horrible, sobering thought. The potential damage, however, is magnified when that home belongs to a court reporter. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over. In the past, it was impressive to perform a “paper dump,” displaying piles and piles of documents in the deposition room. Today, however, it is much more professional and efficient to make use of streamlined technology. (more…)

Did you know that court reporters may record the audio of a deposition? Technology developed for computer-aided translation (CAT) software allows for the simultaneous digital audio recording of judicial proceedings, often referred to as audio synchronization or backup audio media (BAM). But while court rules give specific guidelines and requirements regarding video recordings, there is no clear guidance regarding audio recordings. (more…)

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

Photo and video evidence can be extremely effective in legal proceedings. Potential evidence is everywhere and readily available with the proliferation of surveillance cameras and smartphones in everyone’s pockets. With this availability, every legal claim seems to incorporate photos or video. But is photo and video evidence always admissible in court? What are the pitfalls to be aware of when using such evidence? (more…)

Court reporting is not always advertised as the most thrilling career. A career in court reporting can be both personally and professionally fulfilling, but individuals looking for adventure do not often imagine themselves as reporters.

The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer. For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant.

A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

Court records have been migrating from paper to electronic formats for several years now. This shift toward electronic filing, or e-filing, enables legal professionals to easily submit documents to multiple court systems and reduces court costs. In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018. This convenient and cost-saving project will certainly impact filing procedure across the state. Let’s take a closer look at Indiana’s impending e-filing model. (more…)

A house fire is one of the most devastating disasters that can affect a family. Imagining someone’s home, possessions and memories going up in smoke is a horrible, sobering thought. The potential damage, however, is magnified when that home belongs to a court reporter. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over. In the past, it was impressive to perform a “paper dump,” displaying piles and piles of documents in the deposition room. Today, however, it is much more professional and efficient to make use of streamlined technology. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over. In the past, it was impressive to perform a “paper dump,” displaying piles and piles of documents in the deposition room.

Did you know that court reporters may record the audio of a deposition?

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer. For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant. Although the terms “paralegal” and “legal assistant” were once used interchangeably, they now refer to two different professions. In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms. A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

Court records have been migrating from paper to electronic formats for several years now. This shift toward electronic filing, or e-filing, enables legal professionals to easily submit documents to multiple court systems and reduces court costs. In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018. This convenient and cost-saving project will certainly impact filing procedure across the state. Let’s take a closer look at Indiana’s impending e-filing model. (more…)

This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018.

It is very likely in your adult life that you will be summoned for jury duty, but will you make it to the box? Jury selection is an intriguing process. Judges and lawyers must make seemingly cursory assessments of human nature and biases in order to construct an effective panel. This raises the questions: What makes a juror either ideal or problematic? How is a jury selected? (more…)

A house fire is one of the most devastating disasters that can affect a family. Imagining someone’s home, possessions and memories going up in smoke is a horrible, sobering thought. The potential damage, however, is magnified when that home belongs to a court reporter. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over. In the past, it was impressive to perform a “paper dump,” displaying piles and piles of documents in the deposition room.

Did you know that court reporters may record the audio of a deposition? Technology developed for computer-aided translation (CAT) software allows for the simultaneous digital audio recording of judicial proceedings, often referred to as audio synchronization or backup audio media (BAM).

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

Photo and video evidence can be extremely effective in legal proceedings. Potential evidence is everywhere and readily available with the proliferation of surveillance cameras and smartphones in everyone’s pockets. With this availability, every legal claim seems to incorporate photos or video. But is photo and video evidence always admissible in court? What are the pitfalls to be aware of when using such evidence? (more…)

Court reporting is not always advertised as the most thrilling career. A career in court reporting can be both personally and professionally fulfilling, but individuals looking for adventure do not often imagine themselves as reporters. As a matter of fact, the court reporting industry offers incredible opportunities for global jet-setting. If you are interested in a lucrative, rewarding career that allows you to travel all over the world, you should consider becoming an international court reporter. (more…)

The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer. For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant. Although the terms “paralegal” and “legal assistant” were once used interchangeably, they now refer to two different professions. In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms. A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant. Although the terms “paralegal” and “legal assistant” were once used interchangeably, they now refer to two different professions. In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms. A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

Court records have been migrating from paper to electronic formats for several years now. This shift toward electronic filing, or e-filing, enables legal professionals to easily submit documents to multiple court systems and reduces court costs. In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018. This convenient and cost-saving project will certainly impact filing procedure across the state. Let’s take a closer look at Indiana’s impending e-filing model. (more…)

It is very likely in your adult life that you will be summoned for jury duty, but will you make it to the box? Jury selection is an intriguing process. Judges and lawyers must make seemingly cursory assessments of human nature and biases in order to construct an effective panel. This raises the questions: What makes a juror either ideal or problematic? How is a jury selected? (more…)

A house fire is one of the most devastating disasters that can affect a family. Imagining someone’s home, possessions and memories going up in smoke is a horrible, sobering thought. The potential damage, however, is magnified when that home belongs to a court reporter. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over. In the past, it was impressive to perform a “paper dump,” displaying piles and piles of documents in the deposition room. Today, however, it is much more professional and efficient to make use of streamlined technology. (more…)

Did you know that court reporters may record the audio of a deposition? Technology developed for computer-aided translation (CAT) software allows for the simultaneous digital audio recording of judicial proceedings, often referred to as audio synchronization or backup audio media (BAM). But while court rules give specific guidelines and requirements regarding video recordings, there is no clear guidance regarding audio recordings. (more…)

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

Photo and video evidence can be extremely effective in legal proceedings. Potential evidence is everywhere and readily available with the proliferation of surveillance cameras and smartphones in everyone’s pockets. With this availability, every legal claim seems to incorporate photos or video. But is photo and video evidence always admissible in court? What are the pitfalls to be aware of when using such evidence? (more…)

Court reporting is not always advertised as the most thrilling career. A career in court reporting can be both personally and professionally fulfilling, but individuals looking for adventure do not often imagine themselves as reporters. As a matter of fact, the court reporting industry offers incredible opportunities for global jet-setting.

Potential evidence is everywhere and readily available with the proliferation of surveillance cameras and smartphones in everyone’s pockets. With this availability, every legal claim seems to incorporate photos or video. But is photo and video evidence always admissible in court? What are the pitfalls to be aware of when using such evidence? (more…)

Court reporting is not always advertised as the most thrilling career. A career in court reporting can be both personally and professionally fulfilling, but individuals looking for adventure do not often imagine themselves as reporters. As a matter of fact, the court reporting industry offers incredible opportunities for global jet-setting. If you are interested in a lucrative, rewarding career that allows you to travel all over the world, you should consider becoming an international court reporter. (more…)

The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer. For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant. Although the terms “paralegal” and “legal assistant” were once used interchangeably, they now refer to two different professions. In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms. A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

Court records have been migrating from paper to electronic formats for several years now. This shift toward electronic filing, or e-filing, enables legal professionals to easily submit documents to multiple court systems and reduces court costs. In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018. This convenient and cost-saving project will certainly impact filing procedure across the state. Let’s take a closer look at Indiana’s impending e-filing model. (more…)

It is very likely in your adult life that you will be summoned for jury duty, but will you make it to the box? Jury selection is an intriguing process. Judges and lawyers must make seemingly cursory assessments of human nature and biases in order to construct an effective panel. This raises the questions: What makes a juror either ideal or problematic? How is a jury selected? (more…)

A house fire is one of the most devastating disasters that can affect a family. Imagining someone’s home, possessions and memories going up in smoke is a horrible, sobering thought. The potential damage, however, is magnified when that home belongs to a court reporter. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over. In the past, it was impressive to perform a “paper dump,” displaying piles and piles of documents in the deposition room. Today, however, it is much more professional and efficient to make use of streamlined technology. (more…)

Did you know that court reporters may record the audio of a deposition? Technology developed for computer-aided translation (CAT) software allows for the simultaneous digital audio recording of judicial proceedings, often referred to as audio synchronization or backup audio media (BAM).

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer. For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant. Although the terms “paralegal” and “legal assistant” were once used interchangeably, they now refer to two different professions. In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms. A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

Court records have been migrating from paper to electronic formats for several years now. This shift toward electronic filing, or e-filing, enables legal professionals to easily submit documents to multiple court systems and reduces court costs. In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018. This convenient and cost-saving project will certainly impact filing procedure across the state. Let’s take a closer look at Indiana’s impending e-filing model. (more…)

A house fire is one of the most devastating disasters that can affect a family. Imagining someone’s home, possessions and memories going up in smoke is a horrible, sobering thought. The potential damage, however, is magnified when that home belongs to a court reporter. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over. In the past, it was impressive to perform a “paper dump,” displaying piles and piles of documents in the deposition room.

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over. In the past, it was impressive to perform a “paper dump,” displaying piles and piles of documents in the deposition room.

Did you know that court reporters may record the audio of a deposition?

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen.

The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer. For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant.

In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms. A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

Court records have been migrating from paper to electronic formats for several years now. This shift toward electronic filing, or e-filing, enables legal professionals to easily submit documents to multiple court systems and reduces court costs. In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018.

In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018. This convenient and cost-saving project will certainly impact filing procedure across the state. Let’s take a closer look at Indiana’s impending e-filing model. (more…)

It is very likely in your adult life that you will be summoned for jury duty, but will you make it to the box? Jury selection is an intriguing process. Judges and lawyers must make seemingly cursory assessments of human nature and biases in order to construct an effective panel. This raises the questions: What makes a juror either ideal or problematic? How is a jury selected? (more…)

A house fire is one of the most devastating disasters that can affect a family. Imagining someone’s home, possessions and memories going up in smoke is a horrible, sobering thought. The potential damage, however, is magnified when that home belongs to a court reporter. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over. In the past, it was impressive to perform a “paper dump,” displaying piles and piles of documents in the deposition room. Today, however, it is much more professional and efficient to make use of streamlined technology. (more…)

Did you know that court reporters may record the audio of a deposition? Technology developed for computer-aided translation (CAT) software allows for the simultaneous digital audio recording of judicial proceedings, often referred to as audio synchronization or backup audio media (BAM). But while court rules give specific guidelines and requirements regarding video recordings, there is no clear guidance regarding audio recordings. (more…)

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

Photo and video evidence can be extremely effective in legal proceedings. Potential evidence is everywhere and readily available with the proliferation of surveillance cameras and smartphones in everyone’s pockets. With this availability, every legal claim seems to incorporate photos or video. But is photo and video evidence always admissible in court? What are the pitfalls to be aware of when using such evidence? (more…)

Court reporting is not always advertised as the most thrilling career. A career in court reporting can be both personally and professionally fulfilling, but individuals looking for adventure do not often imagine themselves as reporters. As a matter of fact, the court reporting industry offers incredible opportunities for global jet-setting. If you are interested in a lucrative, rewarding career that allows you to travel all over the world, you should consider becoming an international court reporter. (more…)

The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer. For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant. Although the terms “paralegal” and “legal assistant” were once used interchangeably, they now refer to two different professions. In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms. A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer. For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant. Although the terms “paralegal” and “legal assistant” were once used interchangeably, they now refer to two different professions. In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms. A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

Court records have been migrating from paper to electronic formats for several years now. This shift toward electronic filing, or e-filing, enables legal professionals to easily submit documents to multiple court systems and reduces court costs. In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018. This convenient and cost-saving project will certainly impact filing procedure across the state. Let’s take a closer look at Indiana’s impending e-filing model. (more…)

It is very likely in your adult life that you will be summoned for jury duty, but will you make it to the box? Jury selection is an intriguing process. Judges and lawyers must make seemingly cursory assessments of human nature and biases in order to construct an effective panel. This raises the questions: What makes a juror either ideal or problematic? How is a jury selected? (more…)

A house fire is one of the most devastating disasters that can affect a family. Imagining someone’s home, possessions and memories going up in smoke is a horrible, sobering thought. The potential damage, however, is magnified when that home belongs to a court reporter. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over. In the past, it was impressive to perform a “paper dump,” displaying piles and piles of documents in the deposition room. Today, however, it is much more professional and efficient to make use of streamlined technology. (more…)

Did you know that court reporters may record the audio of a deposition? Technology developed for computer-aided translation (CAT) software allows for the simultaneous digital audio recording of judicial proceedings, often referred to as audio synchronization or backup audio media (BAM). But while court rules give specific guidelines and requirements regarding video recordings, there is no clear guidance regarding audio recordings. (more…)

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

Photo and video evidence can be extremely effective in legal proceedings. Potential evidence is everywhere and readily available with the proliferation of surveillance cameras and smartphones in everyone’s pockets. With this availability, every legal claim seems to incorporate photos or video. But is photo and video evidence always admissible in court? What are the pitfalls to be aware of when using such evidence? (more…)

The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer.

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

Photo and video evidence can be extremely effective in legal proceedings. Potential evidence is everywhere and readily available with the proliferation of surveillance cameras and smartphones in everyone’s pockets.

What are the pitfalls to be aware of when using such evidence? (more…)

Court reporting is not always advertised as the most thrilling career.

For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant. Although the terms “paralegal” and “legal assistant” were once used interchangeably, they now refer to two different professions. In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms. A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

Court records have been migrating from paper to electronic formats for several years now. This shift toward electronic filing, or e-filing, enables legal professionals to easily submit documents to multiple court systems and reduces court costs. In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018. This convenient and cost-saving project will certainly impact filing procedure across the state. Let’s take a closer look at Indiana’s impending e-filing model. (more…)

It is very likely in your adult life that you will be summoned for jury duty, but will you make it to the box? Jury selection is an intriguing process.

A house fire is one of the most devastating disasters that can affect a family. Imagining someone’s home, possessions and memories going up in smoke is a horrible, sobering thought. The potential damage, however, is magnified when that home belongs to a court reporter. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over.

A house fire is one of the most devastating disasters that can affect a family. Imagining someone’s home, possessions and memories going up in smoke is a horrible, sobering thought. The potential damage, however, is magnified when that home belongs to a court reporter. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over. In the past, it was impressive to perform a “paper dump,” displaying piles and piles of documents in the deposition room. Today, however, it is much more professional and efficient to make use of streamlined technology. (more…)

Did you know that court reporters may record the audio of a deposition?

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

Potential evidence is everywhere and readily available with the proliferation of surveillance cameras and smartphones in everyone’s pockets. With this availability, every legal claim seems to incorporate photos or video. But is photo and video evidence always admissible in court? What are the pitfalls to be aware of when using such evidence? (more…)

Court reporting is not always advertised as the most thrilling career. A career in court reporting can be both personally and professionally fulfilling, but individuals looking for adventure do not often imagine themselves as reporters. As a matter of fact, the court reporting industry offers incredible opportunities for global jet-setting. If you are interested in a lucrative, rewarding career that allows you to travel all over the world, you should consider becoming an international court reporter. (more…)

The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer. For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant. Although the terms “paralegal” and “legal assistant” were once used interchangeably, they now refer to two different professions. In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms. A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

Court records have been migrating from paper to electronic formats for several years now. This shift toward electronic filing, or e-filing, enables legal professionals to easily submit documents to multiple court systems and reduces court costs. In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018. This convenient and cost-saving project will certainly impact filing procedure across the state. Let’s take a closer look at Indiana’s impending e-filing model. (more…)

This shift toward electronic filing, or e-filing, enables legal professionals to easily submit documents to multiple court systems and reduces court costs. In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018. This convenient and cost-saving project will certainly impact filing procedure across the state. Let’s take a closer look at Indiana’s impending e-filing model. (more…)

It is very likely in your adult life that you will be summoned for jury duty, but will you make it to the box? Jury selection is an intriguing process. Judges and lawyers must make seemingly cursory assessments of human nature and biases in order to construct an effective panel. This raises the questions: What makes a juror either ideal or problematic? How is a jury selected? (more…)

A house fire is one of the most devastating disasters that can affect a family. Imagining someone’s home, possessions and memories going up in smoke is a horrible, sobering thought. The potential damage, however, is magnified when that home belongs to a court reporter. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over.

Did you know that court reporters may record the audio of a deposition?

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

Photo and video evidence can be extremely effective in legal proceedings. Potential evidence is everywhere and readily available with the proliferation of surveillance cameras and smartphones in everyone’s pockets. With this availability, every legal claim seems to incorporate photos or video. But is photo and video evidence always admissible in court? What are the pitfalls to be aware of when using such evidence? (more…)

Court reporting is not always advertised as the most thrilling career. A career in court reporting can be both personally and professionally fulfilling, but individuals looking for adventure do not often imagine themselves as reporters. As a matter of fact, the court reporting industry offers incredible opportunities for global jet-setting. If you are interested in a lucrative, rewarding career that allows you to travel all over the world, you should consider becoming an international court reporter. (more…)

The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer. For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant. Although the terms “paralegal” and “legal assistant” were once used interchangeably, they now refer to two different professions. In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms.

The legal field presents an exciting career possibility for many. However, some individuals may not want to invest in law school and become a lawyer. For these individuals there are several other legal positions available, including that of a paralegal or a legal assistant. Although the terms “paralegal” and “legal assistant” were once used interchangeably, they now refer to two different professions. In recent years, “legal assistant” has more commonly replaced the title “legal secretary” in law firms. A paralegal and a legal assistant can differ widely in terms of educational requirements, skill sets, duties and compensation. In this blog post, we will examine those differences. (more…)

Court records have been migrating from paper to electronic formats for several years now. This shift toward electronic filing, or e-filing, enables legal professionals to easily submit documents to multiple court systems and reduces court costs. In 2014, the Indiana Supreme Court announced the implementation of an e-filing system, allowing cases to be filed entirely online. This system is currently up-and-running in more than half of all Indiana courts and is anticipated to be statewide by the end of 2018. This convenient and cost-saving project will certainly impact filing procedure across the state. Let’s take a closer look at Indiana’s impending e-filing model. (more…)

It is very likely in your adult life that you will be summoned for jury duty, but will you make it to the box? Jury selection is an intriguing process. Judges and lawyers must make seemingly cursory assessments of human nature and biases in order to construct an effective panel. This raises the questions: What makes a juror either ideal or problematic? How is a jury selected? (more…)

A house fire is one of the most devastating disasters that can affect a family. Imagining someone’s home, possessions and memories going up in smoke is a horrible, sobering thought. The potential damage, however, is magnified when that home belongs to a court reporter. (more…)

The days of court reporters and litigators lugging around heavy binders and shipping large boxes filled with paper documents are over. In the past, it was impressive to perform a “paper dump,” displaying piles and piles of documents in the deposition room. Today, however, it is much more professional and efficient to make use of streamlined technology. (more…)

Did you know that court reporters may record the audio of a deposition? Technology developed for computer-aided translation (CAT) software allows for the simultaneous digital audio recording of judicial proceedings, often referred to as audio synchronization or backup audio media (BAM).

There some instances in depositions when a deponent must view and discuss many exhibits. Typically in these situations, legal videographers will zoom in on the exhibit(s) in order to capture what is being discussed. While this is common practice, there is a more effective technological solution for capturing exhibit intensive depositions: Picture-in-Picture video. Picture-in-Picture technology allows videographers to display exhibits and video of the deponents reaction simultaneously on a multiple window screen. Like standard videography services, Picture-in-Picture can be utilized live on the spot. This interactive solution is an incredibly useful tool for enhancing the visual presentation of a deposition while maintaining professional standards. (more…)

Photo and video evidence can be extremely effective in legal proceedings. Potential evidence is everywhere and readily available with the proliferation of surveillance cameras and smartphones in everyone’s pockets. With this availability, every legal claim seems to incorporate photos or video. But is photo and video evidence always admissible in court? What are the pitfalls to be aware of when using such evidence? (more…)
