[Free eBook] Using Science to Prevail in Your Case or Controversy

We’re pleased to announce the release of a new ebook Using Science to Prevail in Your Case or Controversy.

This book is the result of a joint publishing effort between ISS and A2L consulting.

A2L consulting, is the nation’s leading attorney owned and operated litigation consulting, jury consulting, litigation graphics and trial technology firm. Since 1995, A2L has supported litigators from 100 percent of the nation’s largest law firms, hundreds of corporate clients, as well as government agencies worldwide on more than 10,000 cases. In fact they were voted the best jury consultants and litigation graphics by the readers of LegalTimes and the National Law Journal.

ISS and A2L have been partnering for years for the benefit of many law firms and corporations. We have had the pleasure of working together on everything from tobacco litigation to hydraulic fracturing to alleged health effects of cell phones. Along the way, we have learned, often by overcoming enormous challenges, how to make science your ally – whether inside or outside of the courtroom. Also, check out our latest joint blog post 10 Key Expert Witness Areas to Consider in Your Next Toxic Tort Case.

Here is a succinct description of our new book as provided by A2L consulting:

This book explores the unique relationship between science and the law. By explaining how expert testimony is used to prove a case, how causation is established, and how science can be explained to jurors in an understandable manner, this book breaks new ground for litigators and advocates alike.

Science and the law can and should work together to achieve results that are correct, fair, and scientifically accurate.

As U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has written in his Introduction to the Reference Manual on Scientific Evidence published by the Federal Judicial Center and the National Research Council:

“In this age of science, science should expect to find a warm wel­come, perhaps a permanent home, in our courtrooms. The reason is a simple one. The legal disputes before us increasingly involve the principles and tools of science. Proper resolution of those disputes matters not just to the litigants, but also to the general public—those who live in our technologically complex society and whom the law must serve. Our decisions should reflect a proper scientific and technical understanding so that the law can respond to the needs of the public.”

That is why it is so important for experts in science and experts in the presentation of facts at trial to work together.

Among the topics addressed in this new ebook are: Teaching Science to a Jury, a Trial Consulting Challenge; Establishing Causation in the Courtroom; Top 14 Testimony Tips for Litigators and Expert Witnesses; Using Trial Graphics Statistics to Win or Defend Your Case; Epidemiology Methods in Litigation; Making the Complex Understandable in Pharmaceutical Cases; Debunking Junk Science for Lawyers; Top 5 Reasons You Need a Scientific Consulting Expert; 7 Smart Ways for Expert Witnesses to Give Better Testimony; and 3 Ways to Handle a Presentation-Challenged Expert Witness.

 We really hope you enjoy and learn from this book! Download it here.
