They provide information regarding how the attorney delivered in the courtroom - detailing his or her strengths and weaknesses, presentation style and disposition.
• Witness Works- witness preparation strategies
Available only to trial consultants, Witness Works contains numerous effective witness-specific resources that are part of the Witness Preparation Notebook. Among these resources are sample evaluation forms, scientific articles written by Dr. Singer on the subject of Witness Preparation and case-specific witness preparation reports.
• Applied social psychological research resources
TCI has a vast collection of real-world social psychological case studies available. These scientific studies are proven to be extremely valuable when working on new cases as a trial consultant or litigator, as they reveal a multitude of cognitive and decision making processes directly related to juror decision making.
• Supplemental Juror Questionnaires
Available to litigators only, i4TC offers numerous scientifically-tested Supplemental Juror Questionnaires (SJQ’s). SJQ’s are an effective methodology for obtaining information about jurors during the voir dire process. These questionnaires aid the attorney in the investigation into the potential juror’s background, personal experiences, and worldviews, for example.
