Real Persuasion in the Fake News Era

On Demand
This live broadcast from Thursday, March 29th has concluded. Register below to access the on demand recording.

In today’s world of network connectivity, potential jurors can access news and data, often through social media, in an instant. As a result, they are increasingly skeptical of facts and science, relying more on their own persistent, often polarizing, beliefs and the websites they trust. For litigators, this means jurors may be resistant to their case—even in the face of strong factual and scientific evidence.

In this webcast, you will learn how to motivate jurors to care more about scientific evidence; combat cognitive biases that influence juror attention and persuasion; share complex concepts amidst greater distraction and waning attention spans; and let jurors piece together your conclusions so they make your arguments for you.
