Argument visuals are essential for a successful closing argument. For my Comprehensive Trial Advocacy class, the students are assigned the task of creating a visual for trial. Then, in their mock trial they utilize visuals to among other things bring their summations alive for the jury. For example, Grace Dyer, shown here, argued self defense with the aid of silhouettes of her client the smaller man and the larger person who was shot, a knife and a scale model of the crime scene. She also wanted to demonstrate a stabbing utilizing the Styrofoam.
