Juror Confirmation Bias: Powerful, Perilous, Preventable
Presented By: DRI and Courtoom Sciences, Inc
Over the course of a civil trial, jurors are presented with several pieces of information. At the conclusion of the attorney presentations, counsel places their client’s case in the hands of jurors and have faith that the jurors will objectively view all of the evidence. However, this is far from what happens in the deliberation room. Instead, jurors often “cherry-pick” the information that supports their preconceived attitudes and beliefs. This webinar will explain why jurors fall victim to such behavior and how this decision-making process can be perilous to a client’s case.
