Bias in the Courtroom: Gender, Race and the Jury (live teleconference option
juror biases can play a role in any case on many levels. Being aware and
adjusting for these biases can make the difference in a case. Jury consultants Johanna Carrane and Christina Ouska seek to answer
the taboo questions of: How do jurors see gender and race in the courtroom? Are
there issues of equality? How do I identify a biased juror? As a litigator, how
do I best present my case such that jurors concentrate on the evidence and not
the presenter? How do I protect the jurors’ rights and my own? Questions from
those with all levels of experience will be welcome.
