What is Trial Science?
Anyone who has ever tried a case knows that a trial is a process not just an event. The trial process begins with a decision to accept a case and ends with a verdict.
Trial science refers to the application of the scientific method to the litigation process. It is a mixture of psychology, research and the law, which is applied to various aspects of trials and settlements. Trial science is derived from the social sciences including clinical, social, group and research psychologies, statistics and more. Attorneys use trial science to understand liability issues and forecast damage awards in their cases.
