Best Practices For Conducting Jury Trials During COVID-19

Best Practices For Conducting Jury Trials During COVID-19


A timely discussion by a panel of judges discussing the best practices for conducting jury trials while adhering to safety guidelines to protect against COVID-19 transmission.

This program is aimed at judges who may be charged with conducting jury trials in the months ahead before we return to normal, pre-pandemic operations.  Panelists will describe their recent experiences conducting jury trials and how they dealt with anticipated — and unanticipated — concerns that arose during their trials.

The panel discussion will cover topics such as:

•             Pre-Trial Conferences and Preparation

•             Courtroom Configuration

•             Public Access

•             Jury Selection

•             Attorneys’ Communications with Jurors in Opening/Closing Statements

•             Attorneys’ Communications with Clients at Counsel Tables

•             Bench Conferences/Sidebars

•             Witness Testimony

•             Documentary Evidence

•             Jury Assembly and Deliberations

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panelists about their experiences.
