Voir dire is routinely the most anxiety-inducing and least well-done aspect of jury trial practice. While even the most experienced trial attorney’s manifest little apprehension with opening statements, cross examination of difficult witnesses and experts, or closing arguments, the thought of actually having to talk with prospective jurors—like a real and invested human being, for an extended period of time—reflects counsel’s inability to control the situation or predict the often–surprising answers they will get to questions from people they don’t know. Moreover, in efforts to obtain the best outcome, trial counsel are well served to evaluate the multiple available grounds to successfully challenge the admissibility of the opponent’s experts’ opinions. 

Please join us for a webinar addressing: 

  1. The methods to reduce the fear associated with voir dire and strategies that will allow counsel to exercise proper challenges for cause.
  2. The conduct of the “expert” expert deposition.
  3. Necessary efforts to exclude or limit the expression of expert opinion testimony at trial.
