"Given the importance of trial consultants to the modern-day practice of law, Scientific Jury Selection is designed to be informative for psychologists, other professionals interested in trial consulting (e.g., sociologists, communication experts, marketing researchers, psychiatrists, and social workers), and attorneys. The authors provide a thorough review of the most common techniques used to select jurors and a critical, social-science-based evaluation of the ultimate effectiveness of these methods. The nature and mechanics of the voir dire process, the use of community surveys, and the influence of demographic factors on scientific jury selection are among the many topics given a close examination by the two authors, who are pioneers in the field. Psychologists and other social scientists as well as practicing trial consultants who read the book will gain a better understanding of the current state of research relevant to scientific jury selection, emerging trends, and areas in which new research needs to be conducted to advance the field. Attorneys who read the book will be better positioned to decide whether to hire consultants to assist in future litigation, and if so, what types of services these consultants should provide"--Jacket.

The book is known for its special focus on a rich selection of materials from multiple institutions, including primary materials from U.S. Supreme Court cases, state high court cases, state and federal statutes, rules of procedure, and police and prosecutorial policies, along with materials from social science studies. The new edition retains the casebook’s engaging writing style and division of materials into “teachable chunks.” Updated cases are chosen for their contemporary accuracy and feel, to complement essential cases of historical value.

Civil Procedure: Jury Process provides a comprehensive examination of the jury, beginning with a brief look at its historical role s and ending with a consideration of the future of the jury as an institution. The book is organized around several of the key stages of the jury, from the venire, voir dire, and exercise of peremptory challenges to jury deliberations and post-verdict interviews of jurors. In each of these and other areas, the book considers potential jury reforms, such as whether prospective jurors should be questioned individually during voir dire or whether jurors should be permitted to submit written questions to the judge during trial. These issues are set in the larger framework of the jury broad roles in society and in what ways juries achieve these goals and in what ways they fall short and whether there are tools, including new technologies, that jurors should be given to help them perform their tasks more effectively. Finally, the book considers whether there a

Dershowitz, Professor of Law, Harvard Law SchoolA ''must read'' from the world''s greatest criminalist. Dr. Lee leads us on an investigative journey to justice in five sensational murder cases. -Johnnie L. Cochran Jr.Truly a legend in his own time, Dr. Henry C. Lee is considered by many to be the greatest forensic scientist in the world. He gained widespread public recognition through his testimony in the televised O. J. Simpson trial. Since that time he has helped with the Jon Benet Ramsey case and the investigations of mass murder in Croatia.This book will take the reader through the entire investigative process of five murder cases, with Dr. Lee as the tour guide. The cases include: the O. J. Simpson case, in which Dr. Lee''s analysis of the blood evidence at the crime scene revealed that the Los Angeles Police Department had missed several blood drops on the back of Nicole Simpson, a footprint belonging to a second possible assailant, and the physical improbability of Mr. Simpson''s climbing a fence to return to his home; the woodchipper murder, in which an Eastern Airlines pilot murdered his wife and then put her body through a woodchipper in an attempt to dispose of the remains; the Mathison murder, in which a veteran Hawaiian police sergeant claimed to have accidentally run over his wife after she fled the family van during a dispute; the Ed Sherman murder, in which a college English professor attempted to disguise the time of his wife''s death by turning up the air conditioning unit in their house and then using the alibi that he was away from the home sailing on the day the crime allegedly took place; and the McArthur murder, in which a police sergeant shot and killed his wife, but then tried to make it appear that she had accidentally killed herself.In each case, Dr. Lee presents in scientific detail how he investigated the murders, analyzed the evidence, and used techniques that played a critical role in bringing criminals to justice. He discusses how the criminalist examines blood spatter evidence and uses blood identification, DNA analysis, and other forensic technologies developed in the world''s best laboratories. This is a fascinating insider''s look by a world-renowned expert into the pursuit of justice in some of the most grisly criminal cases of recent times.Dr. Henry C. Lee (Branford, CT), chair and professor of forensic science at the University of New Haven and chief emeritus in the Department of Public Safety in Meriden, CT, is a lifetime distinguished member of the International Association of Identification and a distinguished fellow of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.

"Each arena has its Michael Jordan. In the courtroom, it is David Berg. And Berg has taken this natural talent and time-honed skill to a new level as he unlocks certain secrets that have catapulted him to the top of his profession. What most have considered his "magic," he explains as common sense practice. This book should be a required text at every law school. Those in the legal profession should not just read this, they should study it. The difference it will make in case results more than pays for the book, over and over again." W. Mark Lanier, The Lanier Law Firm, Houston, TX "My father made his living as a lawyer. My elder brother used to practice his cross-examination technique on me and thus rose to be Australia's attorney-general. It might be said that I grew up with the law. But I can swear on a stack of bibles that I have never read a book about the nuts and bolts of forensic skill, about how to win cases and influence judges and juries, as expert, perceptive, precise and, often, as outright funny as David Berg's. I hope that I never need the professional services to which his book is a guide, but if I do I pray my defender will have read and memorized every last word of it." Robert Hughes, Author of the Fatal Shore Former art critic of Time magazine "I think of David as a people's trial lawyer in the Clarence Darrow tradition. He has tried almost every type of case from murder to patent infringement. He has an ability to persuade jurors that is the equal of any practitioner I know. The Trial Lawyer shows how it can be done." Morris Dees, Southern Poverty Law Center, Montgomery, AL "I wrote this book out of the fear that the great war stories of the next generation of trial lawyers would begin, `And then, I looked that mediator in the eyes and I said'...
