No one reasonably disputes that technology, when managed
efficiently, reduces the cost of litigation and causes the conduct
of a trial to be more efficient. However, advocates, judges and the
court system, generally, have not fully adapted to available

paperless trial. This Paperless Trials Manual seeks to remedy this
problem. Designed for advocates, judges and the court system
generally, this Manual provides guidance on how to conduct a
paperless trial. The Manual recognizes that the technologies used
at a paperless trial need to be cost-effective and proportional.
This Manual accordingly adopts costeffective technologies that
apply to trials of all shapes and sizes—from the small oneday
trial involving a few witnesses and a handful of documents to the
large, multi-month trial involving hundreds of witnesses and
hundreds of thousands of documents.
