This program addresses how recent changes in District of Columbia juries affect presentation of a tort case at trial. Perspectives will be provided from the Superior Court bench, Jury Commissioner's office, and practitioners who try cases involving medical negligence, vehicular negligence, and other torts. Discussion will include jury panel composition, voir dire, and jury note-taking, with observations and tips from attorneys experienced with DC juries, as well as "do's and dont's" from the bench.
