Episode #16 - Nuclear verdicts - Part V

Guest: Dr. George Speckart, CSI Director of Litigation Consulting

This episode of The Litigation Psychology Podcast is all about the art and science of jury selection. CSI Jury and Litigation Consulting experts Dr. Bill Kanasky and Dr. George Speckart discuss how rules for jury selection are drastically different across not just venues but across judges and how these differences need to be managed. They also cover some of the myths and assumptions about what makes a "plaintiff juror" or a "defense juror", the importance of a scientifically-valid supplemental juror questionnaire, how simple demographics such as political leanings aren't reliable indicators of how a juror will lean, and more.
