If you can learn the secrets of how mock jurors commonly behave during mock trial deliberations, you will be better positioned to win at trial. These behavior patterns are understandably foreign since most people see mock juries deliberate infrequently. However, when you are a jury consultant, mock trials are routine, and repeat behavior patterns become clear over a long career.
Surprisingly, it turns out that no matter where you go in the country, mock jurors tend to act in similar ways. Although there are venue-specific idiosyncrasies, mock jurors act quite similarly from locale to locale. If you understand the questions they almost always ask, the order of deliberations they usually follow and how mock juries address damages almost every time, you will be far ahead of almost all of your peers.
We at A2L have put together a free 75-minute webinar, 12 Things Every Mock Juror Ever Has Said. It will be conducted live on December 9, 2014 at 1:30pm ET and is designed to share A2L's accumulated knowledge about mock jurors. Click here to register for it for free.
This webinar will be led by Laurie R. Kuslansky, Ph.D., one of the world's top jury consultants and managing director of A2L's jury consulting team. She has conducted over 400 mock trials in more than 1,000 litigation engagements throughout the country over the past 20+ years. Dr. Kuslansky will describe how mock jurors make decisions about liability and damages. She will address how mock jurors tend to apportion justice, how they calculate damages, how they react to contracts and how mock jury trial deliberations compare to real-life trial deliberations.
Other topics expected to be discussed are how to best position a jury to discuss damages, how mock jurors handle verdict forms and instructions, how mock jurors split up blame among multiple parties, how mock jurors use graphics, what juries forget and much more. This event is suitable for anyone with an interest in litigation, but this webinar is designed for the courtroom lawyer.
