Trial Consulting takes an indepth look at the primary activities of trial consultants, including witness preparation, focus groups and mock trials, jury selection, change of venue surveys, and attorney presentation style. It also examines the profession\'s struggle to define itself, resisting certification and licensure requirements and settling instead for a set of practice standards. The authors draw upon empirical and other scholarly work in the social sciences, recommended \"best practices\" from trial lawyers, and the written and spoken recommendations and reflections of the trial consultants themselves.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:description<\/a> \"Trial consulting : does it help to achieve the goal of justice? -- Witness preparation -- Change of venue -- Small-group research -- Trial strategies and procedures -- What do we know about jury deliberations and the determinants of jury decisions? -- Jury selection : measures of general bias -- Jury selection : case-specific approaches -- Jury selection : effectiveness and ethics -- What needs to be changed?<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/873452<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/873452#Series\/american_psychology_law_society_series<\/a>> ; # American Psychology-Law Society series.<\/span>\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:name<\/a> \"Trial consulting<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:productID<\/a> \"57235837<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/57235837#PublicationEvent\/oxford_new_york_oxford_university_press_2005<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/873452#Agent\/oxford_university_press<\/a>> ; # Oxford University Press<\/span>\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:reviews<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/57235837#Review\/-1198979792<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/catdir.loc.gov\/catdir\/enhancements\/fy0635\/2004029052-t.html<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780195183092<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0umbel:isLike<\/a> <http:\/\/bnb.data.bl.uk\/id\/resource\/GBA543752<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0wdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/57235837<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.<\/div>
