Nesson's Winter Evidence takes you on an exploration of the nature of legal proof and persuasion in the context of an American jury trial. Along the way you will confront the testimonial capacities of perception, memory, deception, and character. You will engage the principles and process of the rhetorical storytelling machine. You will begin to see how the machine is built and who runs it. Expect multimedia, group activity and engagement with both real and virtual worlds, plus fun.
