What is the difference in a focus group and a mock trial?

In many ways, the terms mock trial, focus group, and jury simulation are generic and interchangeable. However, for Magnus, a mock trial is vastly different from a focus group. The services section of this website explains the particulars in more detail, but at a basic level, for Magnus, a focus group is nonadversarial while a mock trial is a sophisticated jury simulation involving adversarial arguments and usually involving witness evaluations. Smaller scale mock trials have different names, for Magnus, these include our Case Strength Evaluation Research and Case Overview Research.
