This handbook contains techniques and strategies to help you through the steps of a jury trial from jury selection, witness training, and opening statements through direct and cross-examinations, objections, and closing arguments. Jury voir dire is extensively covered, including discussions on questioning potential jurors, selection strategies, detecting juror bias, ethical considerations, and your client’s role in the process. Additional topics include working with trial consultants, developing your case’s theme, and understanding trial psychology. The handbook also contains a sample engagement letter for a trial consultant and numerous sample post-verdict interview questions to help you understand the jury’s thoughts on issues ranging from general impressions of the case to issues of damages.
