Description

This book analyzes the impact the digital revolution has had and will have on the procedure of presenting arguments in a court of law. Developments in communications technology raise questions about the necessity of unique court performances when the judicial process can be played out in a virtual arena. Are the physical sites which have been allocated for judicial practices still relevant and necessary? How will the meaning of virtual judgment be perceived? Will virtual trials be as effective as traditional procedures? Will there still be a need for rhetoric methods in an environment saturated with technology? This book discusses these questions in a deep and interesting way through the lenses of literature, cinema and popular culture.
