Observing how a juror's opinions interact with those of the other jurors is often important to case strategy. Since JuryReactions is a self-paced service, it does not include juror deliberations. If deliberation dynamics are an important factor in your case, you can add one or more live deliberations to your case.
- The day after the jurors complete the self-paced online JuryReactions, First Court selects 6 - 8 of them to participate in each live deliberation.
- The jurors deliberate virtually to reach an unanimous group verdict. A First Court facilitator is available to answer juror questions and provide logistical/tech support.
- Each client is able to watch the deliberations live and is also provided a recording for further review.
Voir Dire Option
Effective jury selection is a critical component of any lawsuit that goes to trial, and it is a skill that today's litigators have less opportunity to practice than ever before.
The Voir Dire option can be added onto any of First Court's Jury Research Services.
An example of how this Voir Dire option would work for a Jury Reactions case:
An attorney can practice asking voir dire questions to a group of JuryReactions jurors via video conference, but before the jurors complete the self-paced JuryReactions trial. The attorney is then able to choose which jurors he/she would strike from the panel based upon their responses and interactions in Voir Dire.
After the jurors complete the self-paced trial and the attorney receives the JuryReactions results, he/she can determine whether they would have kept the "right" jurors on the panel for their case. This practice can be invaluable in the courtroom during a civil trial.
