Ready for Part II? Now it’s the judges’ turn! Join us for this virtual event, a moderated discussion with a distinguished panel of federal and state court judges about jury selection: before the pandemic, during the pandemic, now, and their predictions for the future. How has jury selection been impacted by technology and the pandemic? Our panelists will explore issues like the makeup of the modern jury, voir dire in the age of Facebook and Twitter, and the do’s and don’ts of online vetting of jurors.

[In Part I, Jason S. Bloom, E. Leon Carter, and Justice Browning examined the necessity and pitfalls of researching jurors online, and how the pandemic and the events of 2020–2021 impacted all of us and affected both trial preparation and jury selection. (While not a prerequisite, Part I is now available as a recorded program! Use these links for details and online registration.)]
