How to Select a Jury: Demonstrations By Experienced Trial Lawyers 2020

Product ID: CA2322D
Presented By: State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE

While you won't win the case at voir dire, it is certainly possible to lose a case there. Selecting the men and women who sit on a jury is a skill best learned through experience. That’s why, for more than 25 years, the State Bar of Wisconsin PINNACLE has partnered with the Wisconsin Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) to teach trial skills in a mock trial setting. This year, we are offering an additional pretrial seminar How to Select a Jury: Demonstrations by Experienced Trial Lawyers, where you’ll learn different voir dire styles and techniques from veteran trial lawyers.

This year’s case involves a volunteer firefighter responding to a call late on a snowy night. On his way to the fire station, he slides through a stop sign and collides with another vehicle, severely injuring a passenger. There is dispute regarding the condition of the pavement, as well as the speed and control of both vehicles. Also at issue: whether the firefighter had a “habit” of running stop signs, and whether the other driver could see the firefighter’s vehicle approaching the intersection.

The jury selected at this seminar serves on the same case at the 26th Annual Institute of Trial Practice. How will they decide? Attend that program too and find out!
