St. Mary's Law Courtroom

law courtroom

St. Mary’s courtroom — one of the most technologically advanced courtrooms in the country — is a modular design that allows for multiple configurations. It may be adjusted to accommodate jury trials, appellate court arguments or student-led events.

Watch Professor David A. Schlueter explain the use of technology at St. Mary’s University School of Law Advocacy Program.

The courtroom features six cameras to record proceedings with the capability to output multiple camera angles to DVD or webcast streaming. Thanks to a $300,000 donation from the AT&T Foundation, proceedings can be webcast and remote testimony can be shown in the courtroom.

Electronic evidence can be fed into the courtroom presentation system from laptops, document cameras, DVDs or digital whiteboards. Evidence is presented on a large projection display, an in-wall plasma display, and to flatscreen monitors at the bench, tables and in the jury box.

The video is fully routable for display on select sources, all sources, or none through an interactive touchscreen system. Studio-quality lighting is also fully computer controlled.
