Jury Mediation is a unique and innovative form of focus group or mock trial jury research. It is conducted cooperatively with all parties within the mediation framework. The process provides a real-time view of how jurors may interpret the evidence in a case.
Focus Groups allow a means of obtaining opinions related to a specific case or subject matter. It gives the trial team an immediate view of jurors' perceptions. The number of prospective jurors ranges from six to several dozen depending on the nature and size of the case. It is arranged by an experienced jury consultant who knows the venue, moderates the groups, develops research questionnaires and suggests theme development to counsel.
