What's Up with Juries in the Digital Age
The jury selection process and courtroom culture have been affected by the digital age in a variety of significant ways. On Tuesday, December 6, 2011 from 9:00am-12:15pm, the CBA presents “Juries in the Digital Age,” a 3.0 CLE hour seminar designed to highlight and address these new challenges and opportunities.
The faculty for the seminar includes Judge Laurel A. Beatty, Franklin County Common Pleas Court, and Professor Thaddeus Hoffmeister, Dayton University School of Law. Judge Beatty will offer a digital-age view from the bench. Professor Hoffmeister, who has made this issue a lynch pin in his legal research, will discuss trends he has termed “Google Mistrial,” “Twitter Effect, “ and “Internet-Tainted Jurors.” The professor will discuss possible remedies in limiting the negative effects of digital age juries.
Register online or call 614/221.4112. Pre-registration fees: M: $105; NM: $150; Non-attorney: $75. Fees increase for day-of registrations. This seminar is CLE Easy Pass eligible.
