The purpose of Deliberations is to provide consultants and litigators from diverse backgrounds with the opportunity to disseminate and discuss important information about the field of litigation consulting to the broader legal community. Deliberations provides a forum to discuss not only “tips of the trade,” but also important (and sometimes controversial) information regarding the application of the social sciences to the practice of litigation. It is our hope that Deliberations will promote discussion about this information among litigation consultants, litigators, and social scientists. It is also our hope that Deliberations will become a “one stop shop” for interesting and valuable information that will assist litigators and consultants in their practice and possibly lead to recommendations that improve the legal system as a whole.
All opinions published within Deliberations as well as the commentary represent the opinions, positions, are creations of the author(s) alone and do not necessarily represent the official opinion of ASTC, it's Board of Directors or its membership, either individually or taken as a group.
