This fall, Hofstra also began offering a class in courtroom technology and advanced advocacy. Students, playing the roles of attorneys, judge and juror, conduct mock trials in the recently updated court classroom, presenting evidence on screens controlled by their iPads. Using the TrialPad app, students can digitally access case files and store evidence. They can then take that evidence and highlight or zoom in on portions of photos or documents, making it easier to point out information to witnesses.

The technology not only makes documents more easily accessible, but allows attorneys to tell a story, keeping jurors engaged, said special professor of law Jared Rosenblatt, who teaches the class.

The course helps make students more marketable, as courtrooms and law firms across the state implement the technology, Rosenblatt said. “In this ever-difficult job market, we need our students to stand out, to be able to say to an employer not only do I have the sufficient experience, but this is what I can do to help your firm, help your business.”
