Both modern and traditional jury consulting practices can help attorneys gain insight into how jurors are likely to respond to case facts before entering the courtroom. However, powerful advances in technology make jury research more statistically reliable, easier to conduct and more cost-effective than ever before.
In this article, we’ll break down how modern jury consulting services work and how they may benefit you ahead of your next big trial date.
Benefits of Using Modern Jury Consulting Technology
Advanced technology in jury research increases the reliability and understanding associated with potential juror decisions.
These solutions offer huge benefits when dealing with complex, high-value cases, so it is imperative attorneys understand every tool at their disposal.
- Larger data pools
- Increased statistical reliability
- Robust findings
- Convenient & time-efficient sessions
- Quick turnaround of analysis
- Real-time polling
- & more
Advanced Data Analysis with Modern Jury Research Solutions
With modern jury research, attorneys are able to access larger pools of data for analysis with increased convenience and efficiency.
This benefits legal teams looking to:
- Gauge a reliable range of potential damages if the case went to a jury trial
- Test themes, storylines & venue climate in order to prepare the most effective trial strategy
- Use jurors’ social media & online activity backgrounds to discover potential biases & past experiences during jury selection and throughout the trial
A standard trial jury comprises individuals with diverse backgrounds and views, most without legal expertise. As such, they can be unpredictable. Technical consulting solutions provide a wide range of insights at every stage of the trial process.

There are several solutions that offer powerful insight into potential jury outcomes ahead of an important trial date:

Social Media Surveillance for Jurors with JuryScout
Interpret a juror’s or potential juror’s online activity to discover any past experiences or biases which can affect their perception of your case with JuryScout.
JuryScout uses include:
- Jury Selection:
As courts are limiting access to jurors during jury selection, online activity reports can provide additional information to show past experiences, political and religious affiliations & more.
- Predicting Juror Behavior:
By creating a personalized matrix of information for each potential juror, JuryScout provides insight into whether a juror has attributes that lead to bias.
Here’s an example: Following an unfavorable verdict on a high-profile case, JuryScout found cached information which located four jurors who violated the court’s instructions. Counsel was able to use this information as part of the appeal.
