50 min/1CLE Credit
“While a juror filters arguments and evidence through a lens crafted from their attitudes and experiences, often the key to a successful jury selection is identifying jurors who are open to seeing the case from your perspective.  In the wake of the recent public health crisis, research suggests that modified court operations and social interactions will continue to evolve, including the procedures for the important legal principle and practice, the jury trial.

Join our distinguished panel for a discussion of what these changes might be and how you should consider approaching your cases now. Topics to be discussed include:

How, if at all, will procedures and protocols in place at the courthouse impact juror’s perspectives; How have the extended stay-at-home orders and their related social and economic effects impacted juror attitudes; What unique strategy issues exist when a remote selection or trial occurs; and What legal and constitutional issues exist if remote selection and trials occur.”
