Jury Selection

Jury consultants gained notoriety after their involvement with such high-profile cases as OJ Simpson, Casey Anthony, and George Zimmerman. Some have criticized the practice as being of a greater advantage to clients with financial resources while others have claimed that the use of jury consultants amounts to a guessing game. Read this article and appraise the use of jury consultants. Do you believe that jury consultants are effective? Why or why not? Do you think requiring that both parties should have equal access to jury consultants despite their financial status? Why or why not? Please write no more than two (2) pages, using APA format.

Prior to beginning work on this discussion, read Chapter 1 in the Frost e-book, Qualitative Research Methods in Psychology, and the required journal articles for this week. Also review last weeks PSY635 Week Two Discussion Scenario (Links to an external site.). In that scenario, the three instructors realized there are limits to the insights they can gain through anonymous counting of discussion posts. The instructors would like to answer two additional research questions: (a) How do their students actually feel about the intervention? and (b) How do students view the influence of the intervention on their learning inside and outside of the classroom (if applicable)?
