Prominent litigators who have conducted jury trials since the courts resumed trials under COVID-19 protocols will share their experiences and successful strategies.

Challenges to be discussed will include getting on the trial docket, assembling a jury, conducting voir dire, ensuring witnesses' attendance and being heard while wearing a face mask. Practitioners will highlight ways in which they adapted their case presentations and offer their impressions of whether jurors were more or less receptive than pre-COVID fact-finders.

Additionally, the seminar will present a judicial perspective on conducting a jury trial during the pandemic and the challenge of hearing civil actions on a docket teeming with criminal cases.

This webinar was hosted using Zoom.
