    sophisticated points to make

    What does this "sophisticated" mean here? The translation goes "altered by education, experience, etc = refined", but it sounds quite awkward to me. I think it's probably another definition like "complex or intricate".

    ex)Silence communicates just as intensely as anything people verbalize. Silence allows the speaker and the listener time to think, time to formulate and organize the meaning of the message. For example, a lawyer may have many sophisticated points to make during closing arguments to the jury....
