Behavioral Confirmation in Voir Dire: Effects on Jury Selection and Verdict Choices

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Behavioral confirmation in voir dire was examined thorough a mock jury selection study. Forty attorneys conducted voir dires with 12 venirepersons each. Pre voir dire, attorneys were given randomly assigned expectations about each venirepersons’ legal attitudes (pro-defense vs. pro-prosecution). Attorneys then questioned venirepersons and made jury selection decisions. Venirepersons read a trial summary post voir dire and reached individual verdicts. False expectations given to attorneys predicted attorneys’ ratings of venirepersons’ legal attitudes and their jury selection decisions post voir dire. Attorney expectations also predicted venirepersons’ verdict choices showing evidence of behavioral confirmation.
