This class will be a live demonstration of a focus group in a generic personal injury case. 

Jeffrey Boyd, President of Boyd Trial Consulting, will present the evidence, arguments, and law to a group of "real" people - non-lawyers who could be jurors someday. The goal is to get the jurors' feedback on the many aspects of the case, so that the lawyers in attendance can see and hear how real people think about the issues in a typical case. This class will be useful to anyone who tries civil cases and will include a live demonstration of a highly interactive focus group. The jurors will be presented with the facts and law of a typical car crash personal injury case. Hear and see how real people process and talk about the facts and the law.

Throughout the course of his career, Jeff has tried over 100 civil jury trials and has served as a trial consultant for over 15 years.
