Bias in the Courtroom: Gender, Race and the Jury

Event Description

Bias in the Courtroom: Gender, Race and the Jury (live teleconference option available)* 


June 27


Unfortunately, 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.


Presenters:  Johanna Carrane, JuryScope; Christina Ouska, JuryScope
