WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn which questions to ask, and what steps to take, for an effective voir dire at the beginning of your next trial.
Voir dire is where the trial begins. It's the first chance you'll get to make an impression on jurors and the only time you'll be able to talk directly to them. With advance preparation and some strategic questions, you can uncover attitudes, biases, and values that may impact your case.
You can find a list of sample voir dire questions with a click of a mouse. But what really makes a voir dire effective? What do you need to accomplish during voir dire? And how can you use voir dire to gain an advantage over your opponent?
