Join us for a panel discussion by judges and trial lawyers about the realities of performing your job in front of 14 strangers who hold the fate of your client in their hands. This distinguished panel of speakers will share their perspective on how the jury assesses the lawyers and parties, how the jury interacts with the judge, what factors the jurors often consider when evaluating the credibility of the lawyers and the parties, how the lawyers read the jurors (and vice versa), and what jurors find persuasive – both verbally and non verbally. Throughout the program, the speakers will discuss issues pertaining to legal ethics and professionalism.
