Jury Expert

Interested in litigation? The Jury Expert: The Art and Science of Litigation Advocacy, is now online and free. This bimonthly publication of the American Association of Trial Consultants is full of fascinating, social science research-based articles on cutting edge topics such as preparing narcissistic witnesses, understanding "solution based mediation," and using technology to create visual images in the courtroom. Each issue is available to download, or can be sent by email subscription or RSS feed. Take a look, and see what's coming up in the November issue.

Hat tip to attorney Rick Georges' Futurelawyer site for the reference.

To gather more information, or to comment on a bill, all you need to do is to click the link to a bill.
