This chapter begins with a brief description of the purpose of the book, which is to explore the multitude of roles for trial consultants, in order to describe the major activities they do (not just the misnamed “jury selection”), and to evaluate both their effectiveness and their ethics. The basic viewpoint is that trial consultants do a number of things that extend beyond the public’s casual awareness. It then discusses the field of trial consulting, the history of trial consulting, what trial consultants do, and criticisms of trial consulting. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
