Trial observation (with a consultant attending the daily proceedings) or the use of a shadow jury are ways of staying abreast of the impact of the evidence and the judge’s rulings on the jury. Did the technical expert communicate effectively? Did the angry outburst appear defensive or justified? Did you seem attacking of the witness or appropriately challenging? When trial observation is used, the consultant interacts with the trial team on as regular a basis as is deemed productive, in addition to preparing a daily commentary on the themes and major points that were established during that day’s proceedings. Shadow jurors are polled for their reactions to each witness, and their feedback is collected and quickly compiled every day at lunch and at close of court to assist in the next phase of the trial.
