Karen Campbell to Join NYCLA Webinar on Conducting a Voir Dire
New York, N.Y. (September 20, 2021) – New York Partner Karen L. Campbell will join a virtual panel hosted by the New York County Lawyers Association (NYCLA), on conducting a voir dire. The webinar will take place on September 30 at 5:15 p.m. ET.
In this 3-hour interactive session, Ms. Campbell and her co-panelists will discuss how legal professionals can question potential jurors, potential red flags to look for, and the differences and similarities in the jury selection process in New York and California. The panel will also share their thoughts on when attorneys should challenge potential jurors or dismiss them for cause while being mindful of the need for a diverse and non-biased jury panel. CLE credits will be available.
Voir dire refers to the process through which potential jurors are questioned by either judges or lawyers to determine their suitability for jury service, and the preliminary questioning of expert witnesses to determine their competence to testify.
