The Center for Death Penalty Litigation invites you to attend this three-day program especially designed for attorneys whose capital clients are facing trial in the near future. The key to a life verdict at trial is effective jury voir dire and the selection of jurors who will consider and give weight to your mitigating evidence and who will stand firm for life in the face of pressure from jurors advocating for death. This training will teach you how to ferret out death-prone jurors and choose life-saving jurors.
The first day will consist of lectures and demonstrations of the Wymore Method of jury selection. On the second day, you will work in small groups to identify themes for voir dire in your case, practice Wymore techniques, and receive feedback from seasoned practitioners. On the third day, you will have the opportunity to practice Wymore techniques with mock jurors.
REGISTRATION FEE: $100.
Enrollment is limited to 15 participants currently representing clients who could face trial in the near future. Please register early to secure a space. For more information, contact Barrie Wallace at 919-956-9545 or at Barrie@cdpl.org.
