Spotlight on Courtroom View Network

spot-light-hi cvn

Check out the library’s study aid and trial advocacy library on LexisNexis Courtroom Cast, powered by Courtroom View Network.  This resource allows you to listen to audio of cases, view video of cases tried across the country, and view training libraries on trial advocacy, evidence and appellate advocacy.

To listen to cases, students can browse by subject area or casebook in the Audio Case Files portion of the database.  Students and faculty can watch cases, including opening and closing statements, witness testimony, and other general court activities in the Video library.  Training libraries on trial advocacy, evidence and appellate advocacy allow students and faculty to watch examples of direct and cross examination, view clips of the Federal Rules of Evidence as demonstrated in actual trials, and view instructions for petitioners and respondents to prepare for and anticipate questions from the bench in appellate arguments.

The school has an account for all students and faculty.  To utilize, sign up and create an account while you are on campus.  Once you’ve done this, the resource can be used anywhere that you have an Internet connection.  Instructions for obtaining an account can be found here.
