    I will try to show that nonverbal communication in the courtroom is a little noticed, yet powerfully important part of the communication process. My research suggests that nonverbal communication might, under certain circumstances and conditions, change the outcome of a trial. Second and probably most importantly, I will try to share with you the techniques and insights that I use as a consultant for law firms preparing for trial. I will explicate pretrial preparation; the importance of physical appearance and establishing your expert qualifications; and how to describe your research, use videotape, state your conclusion, transcend your ego, answer hypothetical questions, and handle cross-examination.
