Summary or Abstract : Two mock trials incorporating unscripted testimony of psychologists and psychiatrists were conducted by practicing attorneys to investigate how jurors respond to expert psychological testimony. To support the continued admissibility of psychological expert testimony in state and federal trials under Rule 702 of the Federal Rules of Evidence, community and student participants were evaluated for their abilities to understand psychological expert testimony on the topic of suicide presented in live and videotaped trial formats. The helpfulness of expert testimony, within the meaning of Rule 702, was considered both subjectively, through examination of the jurors' ratings of the experts, and objectively, through examination of the jurors' use of the expert testimony during deliberations. Relationships between the demographic characteristics, pretrial attitudes, and witness ratings of the jurors and the individual verdicts rendered by the jurors were explored. Attorneys' abilities to predict the most helpful, important, and persuasive aspects of the trial to the jurors were explored also. The success of the authentic mock trial design was defined as the extent to which the study replicated robust findings from the mock trial literature..
