DecisionQuest’s JuryLive provides an affordable platform for mock jury trials by conducting everything online. Attorneys can use an online mock jury to gauge the effectiveness of their case for a fraction of both the time and cost of a typical mock jury.
When you are heading to trial on a case with the potential for a large award or the potential for large costs, a mock jury can be vital to assess the strength of your case. However, mock juries are very expensive and time-consuming. Normally, you would need to assemble a mock jury in your venue, arrange a time for the entire mock jury to be available, and fly both your team and your clients to the venue.
While traditional in-person research still offers valuable insight into juror perception, with DecisionQuest’s JuryLive you can drastically cut down on the time and money you spend on a mock jury because everything occurs online. Mock jurors can participate from any location, as can your team and your client, as you are all linked by DecisionQuest’s real-time video technology. A mock jury can be assembled very quickly because there is no need for the jurors to be in the same location.
DecisionQuest’s experienced consultants make sure to create a representative jury sample. You and your client are then able to put your case in front of the mock jury and watch as the jury deliberates and reaches a verdict. DecisionQuest’s jury consultants then facilitate a discussion among the jurors to help explore issues in the case. The lower cost and time commitment means that you can take an opportunity to conduct a mock jury trial early in your case and make strategy decisions based on what you learn.
How to Get It
DecisionQuest’s JuryLive is available for a flat fee ranging from $12,000 to $14,000 depending on the parameters of the research needed. That price covers paid participants that are a representative sample of possible jurors in your venue, two hours of mock jury time, and four hours with one of Decision Quest’s jury consultants. You also receive a copy of the video from your mock jury session so that your team can review it as often as they wish.
