A Collaborative Discussion Methodology
Our diverse emotional interests are sure to stimulate argument and hurt. Instead of talking each other down; louder than all; more emotional than most, let us first determine our primary mutual interest and make that the specific focus.
There’s no such thing as an experienced juror. The random selection process ensures that a single person will serve jury duty a handful of times at most. When jurors come to trial, they’re in an unfamiliar setting. Some of them will experience court for the first time, with its formal, argumentative, and time consuming processes.
Fair and Just Deliberations is a decision making system that empowers jurors and creates an efficient trial outcome. This structured framework for decision making is based on reason, which helps jurors move past their assumptions to analyze information from other angles.
The Fair and Deliberative Jury Process
The justice system is founded on the idea that ordinary people can be executors of justice. At the Center for Innovative Thinking, we uphold that idea, and we want to make sure those people are able to express themselves to the best of their abilities. We’ve developed a system to empower jurors and result in efficient, high quality trials that avoid costly, time-consuming retrials and other litigation.
A Structured Framework for Decision Making
Businesses are very good at empowering their people to make strong decisions when money is on the line. There are extensive training programs for executives and leaders. Why not push for justice using the same expertise?
