Jurors Using Google To Find Lawyers

October 18th, 2007 · No Comments


 The system of trial by jury has long been abolished in Malaysia since 1 January 1995.

However, such Jury System is still being adopted in US today.

I came across an interesting article revealing that in fact, jurors do surf Internet to learn about the lawyers in the case, despite judges’ warnings otherwise. As such, it is important to have a “jurors favour” site for a law firm in US today. 

The report further states that lawyers do care about having their websites with “jurors effect”, whereby “Of 200 law firm clients of PaperStreet Web Design in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., including Archer & Greiner in Haddonfield, five have mentioned effect on jurors as a goal of their sites, says chief executive Pete Berg.”

Many US law firm also try to have website which contains humanity and even humor factor, e.g. BOLAN JAHNSEN REARDON

Anyhow, I believe it is crucial to have positive and helpful information on law firm website in Malaysia too as recently there is an obvious tendency of more and more people turn to website when they want to search for any information (previously was yellow pages and even yellow pages has gone online now, haha!).

Who knows if one day our judges may also use Google to find our lawyers too…
