LAW - 608 The Jury in Civil Litigation


(3 hrs.)

The course enriches students’ understanding of the jury system and the attorney’s role as a trial advocate through study of its origins, processes, and reforms.  The course touches on methods of jury selection and issues of juror misconduct.  Reading for the course ranges from tradition texts and cases to sample jury questionnaires and motions.  The course includes a presentation by a jury consultant and in-class exercises to contextualize student learning.  Students work individually and in teams during various in-class exercises and when preparing written assignments.  Students gain an appreciation of the attorney’s role as trial advocate, and the impact that the jury system has on many facets of litigation.  English Boals Spring
