Project Info:

We worked on the case from the plaintiff perspective, while classmates worked on the defense perspective. While working on this project, the focus was on clearly conveying the points to a jury.

The timeline highlights major argument points where the defense (the doctors) could have intervened. The illustration argues that the baby would have been delivered sooner without trauma if the doctors acted earlier.
