1.3.7 Technology tutorials and technology briefing sessions

Courts in different jurisdictions have diverse mechanisms to assist the court to better understand the disputed technology. These mechanisms include technical explanatory sessions, with or without parties depending on the complexity of the technology; technology tutorials; or agreed technical primers produced by the parties that contain the basic undisputed technology relevant to the case; or statements of agreed (and disputed) common general knowledge, intended to set out where the parties agree (and disagree) on aspects of the common general knowledge.52
