LAW 2947 - Advanced Trial Practice: The Jury


This course will strive to familiarize the students with the law, rules, and customs pertaining to the most important aspects of the jury in American jurisprudence. Then, with the law as a background, the course will delve into the trial as a learning/teaching process. Finally, the class will study the dynamics of convincing the jury. A secondary, concurrent objective will be to teach the skills all lawyers need: to identify, analyze and solve problems. This course will examine (1) the right to have a jury decide a case, (2) formation of the jury pool, (3) qualification of individual jurors, (4) principles of jury selection, (5) learning theory in teaching the jurors the facts and issues of the case, (6) learning theory in convincing jurors, that is, presenting a case to obtain a favorable verdict, (7) the decision process in the jury room, and (8) proposals for jury system reform.
