Whether a seasoned pro, or a brand new prosecutor, few parts of a trial cause as much anxiety as jury selection. This webinar hopes to add a few new tools to a prosecutor’s tool box in the jury selection process. The “check list approach” to jury selection will be advanced as a potential strategy for prosecutors to use to simplify the process. Refresher of Batson, as well as why the language we use in striking a juror or dealing with potential jurors is so very important. Material that will be covered will be a refresher for some with advanced trial experience, but is geared to newer prosecutors or those who still have some feelings of apprehension, when the judge says: “The prosecution may address the panel.”
