The first jury trials of the COVID-19 age are set to begin with significant changes for courtroom practice and with a jury pool that has been impacted by stay at home orders and the downturn of the economy. This presentation from Keith Pounds, Ph.D, of Litigation Insights, will discuss the latest trends in changing juror attitudes based on national research. It will also consider how those changes in juror experiences and attitudes may impact jurors’ expectations for attorney and witness presentations in the courtroom. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of effective strategies for engaging trial presentations, adapted to work with the physical distancing restrictions put in place by the court.
