Should You Try Your Next Jury State Court Civil Case by Zoom

Event Description

Civil Litigation Section Annual CLE and Elections

Please join us for a discussion about jury zoom trials and hear from a group of lawyers who conducted a mock jury trial before a panel of Hennepin County and Ramsey County jurors in March 2021.  The Honorable Edward Wahl will moderate a discussion about their experience and his experience as the presiding judge of the zoom jury trial. They will provide you tips to prepare for and conduct a jury trial by zoom and discuss the advantages and pitfalls.  You will also learn about the jurors’ reactions of participating and deliberating a civil case by zoom.

Prior to the start of the CLE, the Section Council will host a brief Annual Meeting and Elections to elect the incoming council members and officers for the 2021-2022 bar year.
