A trial consultant brings expertise to a legal team, before, during and after a trial. A trial consultant works with a lawyer, often choosing jurors, performing mock trials, running focus groups, organizing testimony, setting up shadow juries, and providing comment on the trial and the lawyers themselves.
Jury consultants can help a legal team make or break a case. As human behaviour experts, jury consultants help lawyers understand jurors, prepare for trials, manage trials and understand what’s going during a trial.
Jury consultant – a key to winning high stakes legal cases. A jury consultant works with a legal team during jury selection, a trial and sometimes post trial. In most cases, a jury consultant is hired for expert insight into human behaviour – not for knowledge of law itself.
