Civicom MJTO sponsors 2021 ASTC conference

Civicom Mock Jury Trials Online™, an expert in facilitating mock jury trials using web-enabled tools, was a silver sponsor of the American Society of Trial Consultants (ASTC) annual conference that happened on June 24-26, 2021.

Distinguished trial consultants, court administrators, judges, and academic researchers addressed the changes that have impacted trials and litigation and how practices can be nurtured in the fast-changing environment brought upon by the global health crisis. Civicom Mock Jury Trials Online is proud to support the ASTC for the second year in a row. During the 3-day conference, Civicom participated in Trial Consulting 101 and was also featured in a panel discussion that showcased the successful completion of a Voir Dire using Civicom Mock Jury Trials Online.

Civicom joined acclaimed speakers as a sponsor for the 2021 ASTC conference that discussed the drastic changes that have affected trials and the adjustments necessary to ensure their continuity in the new normal.

Trials and litigations continue to occur amid the ongoing global pandemic and several judicial systems encourage these proceedings to happen online. Conducting a virtual mock jury trial requires many of the same tools, expertise, and client service support that is required in accomplishing research studies online – an expertise that Civicom has nurtured over two decades, facilitating over 35,000 telephone and web-enabled in-depth interviews and focus groups each year. 

Through Mock Jury Trials Online, Civicom enables trial consultants to transition from an in-person mock jury trial to a secure and private mock jury trial within an online platform while leveraging Civicom’s innovative solutions and expertise that are committed to efficiency and success.
