Program Summary:

The art of Voir Dire is perhaps one of the most essential trial skills you need to acquire as a trial lawyer. Choosing the decision-makers who will determine the fate of your case gives you an opportunity to get the upper hand before the trial even begins. Are you fully equipped with all the tools needed to select the most sympathetic jury for your client?  What is important to know regarding millennial jurors and practicing in this unique political climate?

Together we will experience the trial team of Cynthia Chihak, Robert Hamparyan and Jeremiah Lowe, along with Jury Consultant Harry Plotkin, as they prepare a minimal impact, rear end auto case, with pre-existing conditions and general damages for voir dire and trial. 

Next, we will watch each panelist conduct mock voir dire with real mock jurors. 

Finally, we will learn as they deconstruct what to do with the information collected, who and how to strike for cause, who and how to use your preemtories, and how to find the leaders on your side.

This will truly be a unique, fun, collaborative and interactive program whereby all participants and panels will walk away with new and effective tools!
