Focus on your case and leave the logistics to us. At AAJ’s Case Plus: Focus Groups for Plaintiff Cases, bring an active case and benefit from not one, but three focus groups – and analyze the results with experienced faculty. We’ll help you find weaknesses in your case, avoid triggers for jurors, and create a winning case strategy.

  • Determine case strengths and weaknesses to build and refine your trial strategy
  • Use focus group feedback to make more informed decisions going into negotiations and trial
  • Get exclusive case consultations and daily briefings with takeaways from faculty and strategy sessions to plan for the future
