Dr. Nick Polavin Presents at the DRI Trucking Law Seminar



We are delighted to announce our sponsorship of the Defense Research Institute (DRI) 2024 Trucking Law Seminar scheduled for April 10-12 in St. Louis, MO. IMS Senior Jury Consultant Nick Polavin, PhD will be a featured panelist alongside Chris Cotter of Roetzel & Andress and Jason Bloom of Bloom Strategic Consulting on April 11 at 9:00 am CST.

The presentation, "You Can't Always Get What You Want: How to Get the Jury You Need for Your Trucking Trial," promises to be an engaging exploration of crucial topics in today's courtrooms. Attendees will gain insights into the composition of the modern jury, the evolution of juror perspectives, and how attorneys should approach jury selection for their trucking trial to mitigate against nuclear verdicts.

With a wealth of expertise in understanding jurors' information processing styles, biases, and methodologies for determining damages, especially in the transportation industry, Dr. Polavin brings invaluable insights to the table. His research extends beyond these realms to encompass critical areas such as group dynamics, decision-making, and conspiracy beliefs. Read and listen to his recent thought leadership:
