Meet Your Next Jury: Lessons for Trial Lawyers from the Brett Kavanaugh Hearing
CLE Program no. 1 (3.0 hours; general trial practice)
This program is pending review by the North Carolina State Bar CLE Section and has not yet been approved for credit.
The Senate hearing to examine the sexual-assault allegations of Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford against now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh turned out to be one of the most remarkable and widely-publicized truth-telling contests in American history, with cross examination, opening statements, and closing arguments all witnessed in real time by a jury of millions of American viewers, some of whom will sit on the jury in your next case. Depending on your point of view, the Kavanaugh hearing either changed or revealed changes in public attitudes toward fundamental legal principles of our democracy. Understanding those changes and how they should affect the way you try and argue cases before juries is the subject of this seminar.
