We believe trial consulting services should be available to those of limited means.
Trial Innovations is strongly committed to pro bono work. Dr. Cannon served for three years as the co-chair of American Society of Trial Consultant's Pro Bono Publico and Awards Committee. Dr. Edelman is also a member on the Committee. Both Dr. Edelman and Dr. Cannon have a long history of consulting with attorneys who represent clients of limited means. We also have a history of working with non profit organizations and consulting in civil rights cases. Please do not hesitate to contact us about future pro bono opportunities.
Continuing Legal Education
We routinely provide free CLE workshops and talks for a variety of non profits, law firms, and organizations. Our CLEs give you the jury's perspective and insight into how jurors process and retain information. For instance, in our witness workshops, we can educate you about how jurors view witnesses. What characteristics, styles, or behaviors are typically associated with deceit? What is associated with honesty? What methodologies are best for working with witnesses? We teach you to look for problematic behaviors in a witness and help you learn how to address some of the most common problems. You will also learn how to identify certain personality characteristics in witnesses (and tactics to work with individuals with those personalities) in order to get the most out of your preparation time with that witness. For additional information about our most popular CLE talks and topics, please click here. If you would like to request a CLE talk or workshop, please call us or send your request via e-mail.
At Trial Innovations, we are actively involved in our communities. We have lectured in trial advocacy classes at law schools around the country, including Cumberland, Emory University, and Stanford University. If you would like one of us to speak to your law school class, please contact us. We would be happy to speak and share insights from hundreds of focus groups and mock trials to let your students have an inside view of jury deliberations.
