Why is Judicial Research so crucial to a litigation team?

Research on a judge can reveal potentially important and insightful information that a litigator can use to gain a competitive advantage in the courtroom.   Getting a sense for a judge's personality, preference, and background gives attorneys the opportunity to present material in a way that is the most impactful.   ALM Judicial profiles are one source that can be used to provide this level of insight.  They can reveal intelligence on a judge's preference, experience, expectations, affiliations, as well as interests or even conflicts of interest that attorneys should know about before they appear before the judge.
