Jury Kollectionns

ComCon grounds its practice in experience, knowledge and research. The Jury Kollectionns share practical ideas and resources based on principles from experience and research for cases proceeding to trial.


Jury Research News

Read about recent jury research in ComCon's Online Jury Research Updates. Ever wanted to know if experts are more persuasive using anecdotes or statistics, the effects of raising the issue of race in voir dire, if verdicts are similar in bench and jury trials, what stealing thunder is and what to do about it? Get answers to these and other questions about jurors, attorneys, witnesses, judges and verdicts in the Online Jury Research Update in the Jury Kollectionn.


PowerPoint Presentations

Look at slide shows about jurors' attitudes, beliefs and behaviors in civil and criminal cases. How do jurors perceive corporations, due process rights, and product manufacturers? How do win rates in intellectual property cases differ when tried to juries versus judges? Watch slide shows about these and other matters in the Slide Show Kollectionn.



Look at visual resources to play during trial about biases and limits of human observation, judgment, awareness, memory and perception. Check out tests and demonstrations that provide jurors direct experiences of how even well-meaning witnesses may not observe, judge, be aware of, remember or perceive situations accurately.
