Jury Selection in Criminal cases

Mike and E discuss the basic step-by-step process on how he selects a jury. Starting with the first step of who is even qualified to be on a jury up to how he interviews each person and makes his final selection. Learn about the importance of the “Voir Dire” process – how he questions potential jurors about their backgrounds and potential biases. Another interesting aspect of jury selection is creating the perfect juror “avatar” – the ideal person for the defense: perfect mindset and perfect core beliefs. Mike also describes what it is like if you are chosen to be on a jury, specially the challenges with the no-media rule. Going without news, cell phone and internet can be quite the challenge!
