His presentation, “Lessons Learned in Jury Research,” will offer insight into the evolution of selecting and talking to juries. This talk will also consider the challenges faced by “post-truth” jurors, a trial lawyer’s view on using jury consultants and shadow juries, and missteps to avoid in mock trials. He is set to speak on the main stage on April 4th at 2:30 PM.
