Excerpted from the website:
- Rather than risking everything on the ambiguities of the jury system, we have found cases often can be settled by bringing the parties before simulated juries in mock trials so they can see how jurors may decide the issues. In fact, using surrogate jurors as guides to case resolution provides insight as to how conflicts can be resolved without cluttering our courts with needless lawsuits. Increasingly parties now put on their actual cases in summary format before mock jurors and use the decisions of citizens in these private courts to frame the actual settlement of the case. Even in criminal cases where the government and defendants have relied previously on plea bargaining and blind negotiations to effect settlement, these sessions you will participate in provide insight as to how the public feels a matter should be resolved —and both sides often see the results for the loser has nowhere to hide.
