The people at The Jury Expert are excited about moving to a new platrorm, Wordpress, where they can incorporate a new look and possibly some new features as well. Below is their e-mail announcing the change and providing links so you can see for yourselves. Take a look:
We are too excited to wait until our next issue to get this announcement out! The Jury Expert has moved to a WordPress platform and we are ready for our close-up. We invite you to visit and see how much easier it is to find what you're looking for on our new site. One of the benefits of our new platform is we can use categories (see the right-hand side of the webpage for the category drop-down menu) to help you find what you need.
Want witness preparation? Visit our witness preparation category and find everything we've published from basic how-to's, to the implications of the Cendant ruling, or to preparing tough witnesses like narcissists. http://www.thejuryexpert.com/category/witness-preparation/
Want voir dire? We have everything in our voir dire category from best practices for paper and pencil organization to cognitive organization strategies or to the new iPad apps. http://www.thejuryexpert.com/category/voire-dire-and-jury-selection/
Want technology? Visit our technology and visual evidence categories for everything from forensic animations to the iPad to RSS to persuasive ways you can use visuals to communicate your message. http://www.thejuryexpert.com/category/technology/ or http://www.thejuryexpert.com/category/visual-evidence/
Want the latest on bias, gender, race, the internet? You know where to go. We have categories on all those topics and more. http://www.thejuryexpert.com/category/bias/ or http://www.thejuryexpert.com/category/gender/ or http://www.thejuryexpert.com/category/internet-social-media/
Visit us now at http://www.thejuryexpert.com/. We are still sprucing things up and uploading images but we are 95% of the way done and wanted to share it with you now. We'll have to bring the comments over bit by bit so don't worry, they will definitely be back but they are not in place now.
Visit. Read. Admire the work of our designer and programmer. And marvel at the fact that with The Jury Expert, you can improve your day-to-day practice without increasing your overhead. It's the gift of litigation advocacy from the American Society of Trial Consultants to all of you.
We publish our March/April issue the end of this month with pieces on the 'nerd' defense that made so many headlines in late February (i.e., put glasses on your criminal defendant and the jury will acquit); ADD jurors; questions about Powerpoint presentations in an article called "Beyond Bulletpoints"; new ideas to address social media's presence in the deliberation room; two new pieces on voir dire; online jury research; and a new video review of dueling iPad jury selection apps. You won't want to miss it!
In the meantime, bookmark our new address (http://www.thejuryexpert.com) and come visit!
