Jury Research Facility & Recruitment
At Schlesinger Group, we understand the very specific needs of jury researchers. Trial and jury consultants trust Schlesinger Group to help them conduct legal focus groups, mock juries, or mock trials to create a strategy or adjust an approach to help them win their important legal cases.
Intelligent Recruitment is Key
Schlesinger Group helps you achieve a final set of 12 well-targeted individuals to participate in your research. We recruit and assemble members of the population who represent an actual jury in terms of gender, age, ethnicity, backgrounds, political opinions, etc.
Finding the right participant is or paramount importance to the outcome of your case. Experience and resourcefulness are pivotal to intelligent recruitment. Our teams go further and dig deeper to find the right participants. They apply their talents to an arsenal of web, phone, and in-person recruitment methods and techniques which set us apart in finding and engaging your target mock jury.
We work closely with you in a rigorous screening process that is an integral part of our success. Screening involves excluding anyone with ties or special interest in the case parties, witnesses etc. We work closely with your jury consultant to compile relevant background questionnaires to capture backgrounds, experiences and attitudes ensure we exclude any participating who in at trial might be excluded for hardship or cause. During telephone screening, we deploy elimination questions and distractor questions to ensure the respondent is unaware of which questions led to their exclusion. On-site screening is also important to the integrity and confidentiality of the process. We rescreen the participants to ensure their responses remain consistent and, at times, to add a final screening layer.
Your process can include allowing the real-life scenario of your jury electing their own leader or alternatively, we can recommend a jury consultant who is expert at leading discussions and in ensuring everyone shares their opinion.
