Schedule and Faculty

Trial Lawyers: Availing Themselves Of Resources For Juror Information (45 minutes)

E. Leon Carter
Carter Arnett PLLC
Dallas, Texas

Getting to know your jurors before the voir dire process begins is an important and integral part of trial preparation. This presentation explores what information lawyers seek out and what tools they use to find it.

Ethical Dimensions of Researching Jurors Online (Legal Ethics: 45 minutes)

John G. Browning
Spencer Fane LLP
Former Justice, 5th Court of Appeals
Plano, Texas

Is voir dire becoming “voir Google?” Engaging in online research about prospective jurors can yield game-changing information, but there are ethical risks for lawyers in doing so. Using real world examples from cases and ethics opinions across the country, this program offers invaluable guidance for lawyers in navigating the ethical boundaries of jury selection in the age of Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

How Do You Go About The Research? How Has The Pandemic Changed Us? (45 minutes)

Jason S. Bloom, M.A.
Litigation & Communication Strategist
Bloom Strategic Consulting, Inc.
Dallas, Texas

When do you do the research? What can be found? Additionally, the events of 2020–2021, and the misinformation within, created a once-in-a-lifetime sociological shift in our worldviews and attitudes. As such, everyone is a different person now, including those we trust with making important decisions in the Court, our jurors. In this fresh and thought-provoking presentation, Mr. Bloom will share research about this shift as well as what it means for your next jury trial.
