Civil Litigation Juror Selection

Your supervising attorney is preparing for the Bob v. Widget World trial next week. The facts of the case are the same as last week’s Activity.

She has asked you to prepare the jury selection materials so that she can focus on other preparations for the trial. The court has sent over the Juror Information Sheets which were filled out by the potential jurors.

She would like you to review the sheets provided and prepare a plan for voir dire. The plan should include three sections:

  1. Summarize the information contained in each of the juror information sheets.
  2. List any additional research you would like to do for each specific juror. For instance, will you check each juror’s LinkedIn page? What will you be looking for? What information do you hope to glean? Include how any additional research might be helpful in voir dire.
  3. Create a list of 10 separate questions she might want to ask the jurors during voir dire. If the question is a yes or no question, you should include follow up questions that could elicit additional information.

Attached are the file containing the juror sheets, as well as the file regarding the lawsuit you are selecting jurors for.
