IAP-NAAG webinar on Developing a Strategic Approach to Jury Selection


Please join us for a webinar organized by the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG) and the IAP Global Training Academy to equip prosecutors with the knowledge and ability to better understand jury selection, the mechanics and nuances of the court logistics when selecting a jury, how to question potential jury panelists, and consideration of strikes for cause and peremptory challenges. 

The session will provide an overview of two different types of jury system – in the UK and the US – with a focus on the US system as an example of where prosecutors play an active role in the jury selection process.  A brief segment on the IAP Standards insofar as they relate to jury selection and upholding a fair trial will be also presented.
