Trial Smarts: Using an Evidence Log at Trial

Building or defending a case at trial is akin to putting together a puzzle.  The well prepared advocate need not “wing it” if pains are taken to organize evidence before the trial begins. I started my legal career as an assistant district attorney.  As a young prosecutor, I observed that the courtroom deputy or clerk completed a log during trial in which he or she identified exhibits when marked them for identification and noted when the exhibits were admitted into evidence.  I obtained a copy of the “evidence log” and subsequently used one to keep track of evidence during trial.
