Webinar 1: Focusing on Focus Groups

August 4, 11:00am-12:00pm PDT


Focus groups give us the opportunity to test our trial strategies while spotlighting potential challenge areas for jurors in your arguments. They are a chance to identify how non-lawyers might view your case and to address those hurdles before you get to the courtroom. But they require a strategic approach unto themselves. Join attorneys from Tyson & Mendes as they explore the strategies for conducting the most effective focus groups. Attendees will learn when to convene a focus group; how to decide whether to hold a focus group live or online; what important questions focus groups are designed to answer; and how to most effectively use the information gathered.
