This seminar, which includes workshops, is an incredible opportunity to hone your jury selection skills and improve the outcome of your cases. Invited faculty to the Christian D. Searcy Voir Dire Institute have collectively tried hundreds of cases to verdict, and have extensive experience conducting voir dire in virtually every type of civil and criminal case. There’s no other place you’ll get some of the country’s most successful trial lawyers ready to teach you and guide you through the jury selection process.

Learn the art and science of communicating with juries, new techniques for conducting effective voir dire, rooting out juror bias, and much more in this in-depth and interactive seminar.
