Raise the Bar: The COVID Effect – The Pandemic’s Impact on Juries and Trials
10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. (Central)
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced courts to do business in new ways and forced lawyers to step up their advocacy skills. What does trial look like during the pandemic and beyond, and what issues will you face? This panel of litigators and litigation consultants will look at the COVID effect on juries and trials from several angles
- How long will it take to get back to normal? Assessing the current status of trials moving forward in jurisdictions across the country, in particular jury trials.
- What does COVID mean for the jury? Presenting new research conducted by ThemeVision on the impact of COVID on juries – who will show up for jury duty and how has the pandemic affected their attitudes and perceptions?
- What is it like? Hear from those who’ve been there as they share real stories from the courtroom – or the "courtZoom" – during the COVID pandemic.
1.0 hour CLE credit pending.
