When it comes to jury selection, multitasking is crucial. Managing the procedures, building a rapport with jurors, exposing jurors who are bad for your case, these are some of the many tasks associated with jury selection. In this program, mock jurors will respond to questioning from both plaintiff and defense counsel in a class action case. Both sides of the case will target their questions according to the mock juror's questionnaire responses. This panel will provide a live-action interaction and discuss best practices for questioning jurors in other cases.

Topics
• Experience a live, mini-voir dire demonstration with mock jurors
• Discover voir dire styles for both plaintiff and defense counsel
• Hear tested strategies for gaining cause challenges for unfavorable jurors
• Observe different approaches to rehabilitating favorable jurors
• Understand assessments related to exercising peremptory challenges
