Are you a litigator in need of a mock jury? Don’t have the cash and time to bring people into your office for a day? You should check out TrialJuries.
As Robert Ambrogi explains, the site was created by two lawyers. Basically, attorneys submit statements of the case (in text, audio, or video). TrialJuries then assigns mock jurors from the appropriate venue. The jurors login, review the case, and then answer the verdict and feedback forms (that the submitting attorney defines).
The cost varies from $1500 to $2500, depending upon the format you choose (text, audio, or video). Jurors can sign up online, and they get paid $30 per case. With 15 jurors assigned to each case, it looks like the founders of TrialJuries have a nice profit margin.
In the end, it looks like this might be a useful way to bring mock juries to smaller firms. Is $1500 too high a price to pay for real feedback on a case? What do you think of this concept? Please post a comment or drop me a line.
