Mock Trials and Focus Groups

Written Brief Assessment Using Mock Judges

As part of a mock bench trial, or as a stand-alone exercise, we recruit one or more mock judges and elicit reactions to your written brief through a detailed written questionnaire as well as interactive discussion.
When possible, judges receive materials from both parties so they are blind to which party is seeking feedback. We frame questions to guide the critique, allowing us to work with you to fine-tune your brief and address the burning questions or concerns identified by mock judges. This allows you to focus and shape the balance of your case.
