As any seasoned trial lawyer knows, cases may not be won on voir dire, but they can certainly be lost on it.  In this one-hour presentation from attorney and trial consultant Denise de La Rue, you will learn the essentials to effective voir dire in child sexual assault cases.  She will discuss the goals of voir dire in these types of cases on how they differ from other criminal trials.  Ms. de la Rue emphasizes the importance of listening to potential jurors and letting them do most of the talking.  Listen as she teaches you her method for questioning that allows you to get the most useful information from potential jurors.  She will also address what to do if you’re concerned a question or answer might taint the panel, determining which types of jurors you want to keep, and when to use questionnaires.  This presentation is a must-watch for anyone who deals with child abuse or assault cases or wants to incorporate novel new approaches into their voir dire.
