Jury Trial Innovations brings you up-to-date on the most recent techniques and
ideas for improving the effectiveness and efficiency of jury trials. This monograph, which takes its organization from the stages of a typical jury trial, discusses the dynamics of jury decision making and reviews jury trial innovations used in state and federal courts across the country. Topics include "How to Relieve Juror Boredom," "Routine Use of Anonymous Juries," "Juror Questions to Witnesses," and "Post-verdict Debriefings with the Trial Judge." This is a joint publication of The National Center for State Courts and the American Bar Association’s Section of Litigation, with funding from the State Justice Institute.

There is a new edition in the works but it will most likely not be available until late 2006.

About the Editors: G. Thomas Munsterman, director of NCSC’s Center for Jury Studies, is a nationally known authority on jury management who has discussed jury-related issues on C-SPAN and CNN. Paula L. Hannaford is an attorney and research analyst for NCSC’s Research Division. G.
