$95.00

CLE credits earned: 1.5 GENERAL (WA 1.5 Law and Legal)

Every juror filters your arguments and evidence through a lens crafted from their attitudes and experiences; the key to a successful jury selection is identifying and removing the jurors who will have difficulty seeing the case from your perspective. In this webcast, jury consultant Dr. Christina Marinakis examines the fundamental characteristics that tend to distinguish plaintiff supporters from defense supporters and presents research-based techniques for eliciting bias from the venire members. Dr. Marinakis’ six-step method for obtaining cause challenges presents real-life examples and explains the psychological foundations for why they work. Implementing these techniques will not only identify the worst jurors for your case, but also help them to recognize their biases and admit they can’t be fair.

Key topics to be discussed:

•  How to formulate questions to increase the likelihood of getting the desired response
•  How best to craft a mini-opening statement
•  How to preserve your best jurors
•  How jury pools may be different post COVID-19
