Not your typical mock trial 

A First Court Private Jury Trial is our premier jury research service and is appropriate for the most important cases. Our focus is on providing you with high-quality objective feedback from a representative group of jurors from your venue.

However, focus groups lack the authenticity of a real trial format that is helpful to prepare your team for trial. Our engaging trial format and realistic group deliberations also help to produce more realistic verdicts. First Court's process brings together the best of both worlds.

First Court's Vulcan Interactive™ software is the key to making this hybrid process work. With Vulcan, you team can instantly view detailed live trial data, video, and written feedback from the jurors. You can access our system on site or remotely, and the software allows teams to collaborate in real time.
