What We Arranged
In a traditional setting, attorneys walk into the courtroom and present their case, and must deliver their argument in a manner that is believable to the jurors. With the training that they received from Civicom, the attorneys were able to present their cases comfortably and believably compelling via webcam, while displaying evidence and videos simultaneously. The presenting attorneys, the jury consultants, and their clients also had the ability to see the jurors’ reactions throughout the presentations as if they were in a courtroom. This helped them gauge how compelling the presentations were.
The case was presented to the jurors in one large group, followed by deliberation sessions, where the jurors were divided into four smaller groups. To make the deliberation sessions as effective as what the clients would typically experience in person, we took a brief pause that allowed us to separate each group into their own assigned webrooms to deliberate. There were dedicated Civicom facilitators assigned to techncially and supportively assist with each deliberation group to ensure a smooth transition. Within a short amount of time, deliberations were lively and underway.
