Voir Dire: Striking the Perfect Balance (Dec 2017)

Voir dire is often a complex balance of trying to convince your potential jurors to believe the theory of your case and like you personally, while simultaneously exposing undesirable jurors. How much time should you devote to the issues that are favorable to you and unfavorable to you? How much should you share about yourself? Review time management strategies and hear practical examples of how to get members of the jury pool to commit to answers, personalize yourself, and more.
