This chapter examines the effectiveness of what is referred to as “jury selection” and evaluates the ethics of such a procedure. In describing the viewpoints of some of the critics of the process, it shows that, sometimes, discussions of ethics and effectiveness are confounded. Some critics seem to be saying “Jury selection by outsiders shouldn’t be done, and it doesn’t work anyway.” The chapter attempts to separate these issues, but in regard to each, the answer is not clear.

Keywords:   trial consulting, trial consultants, jury selection
