Graphs for Evidence Exhibits in Court

Next year I start working as an analyst at an economic consulting firm who provides expert witness testimony in court cases. One of the primary tasks of analysts at the firm is producing graphs to be used as individual evidence exhibits to aid the expert witness. Because they are to be used in court, and for standardization purposes, the graphs all must conform to fairly strict visual standards regarding fonts, line widths, custom footers, placement of legends and titles, and so forth.  I have created a system to export data from a statistical package and automatically create graphs that conform to the firm’s visual standards. Additionally, analysts using my final workbook can use it to automatically format graphs in other workbooks, so they don’t even need to import the data into the workbook I have created. My project will allow me, and other analysts who use it, to spend more time in exploratory data analysis and less time formatting graphs.
