The ultimate goal of all trial consultants is an outcome that achieves success for their clients, whether it is a favorable settlement or the desired trial verdict. Since many of the cases lead to a trial by a jury, it is important to describe just what we know about how juries operate and what determines their verdicts. Knowledge gleaned from empirical research on jury deliberations dates almost entirely from the last four decades, but it is increasing at a rapid rate, especially with regard to juries in civil cases. Trial consultants need to make these research results available to their clients. This chapter moves beyond the empirical knowledge about courtroom procedures described in Chapter 5, to substantive matters relevant to the jury’s decisions.
