Deselection: Strategic Jury Selection
January 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
We’re Back: Selecting a Jury
We went a while without selecting juries so the training department has come up with a three-part series on jury selection so that as we start up again we can pick a jury better than ever before. The first two parts are being offered in January as remote trainings and are open for registration. Each session is $10.00 to attend. The third part will be in person offered in multiple locations – details about part 3 will be forthcoming when we know more about when in person trainings of this nature can happen.
Days 1 and 2 have limited enrollment due to including small groups so please sign up as soon as you know you can attend and let us know in advance if you need to cancel so that we can fill your spot. It is recommended that you attend all three days as day 1 will help inform day 2, but please sign up for them independently.
Day 1 – Jan 11 2pm-4pm, Deselection: Strategic Jury Selection
This day will include a short lecture explaining deselection followed by work in small groups to identify and consider different types of jury selection and identify the benefits of a deselection strategy. You and your group will brainstorm deselection questions related to a mock case that we will be using for Days 2 and 3 and learn about using deselection in different structures of jury selection such as panel voir dire, individual voir dire, judge conducted voir dire, a supplemental questionnaire, etc.
Day 2 – Jan 18, 2pm-4pm, Batson and Carter: Stopping Racism and Homophobia – please see January 18 calendar posting for details and registration
Day 3 – Practicing Panel Voir Dire – TBD 2022
You can’t sign up yet but we look forward to practicing panel voir dire with you in person!
