JuryPad, a new app aimed at trial lawyers conducting jury trials, has just been released. This app is designed to assist in the jury selection process by helping the attorney collect, gather and organize information about jurors.
According to the developer, the app will assist the lawyer with keeping up with information related to jurors to allow for peremptory challenges, cause strikes, and the number of challenges or strikes used by you or your opponent.
You can organize the jurors using various seating charts so you will know exactly which juror is which.
You can even view statistical information about the jury in a graphical form for easy reference.
