Reestablishing Jury Pools in the COVID-19 Era, Thursday, June 4 at 1 pm EDT

POC: Nora Sydow

The first step in resuming jury trials involves summoning and qualifying a pool of prospective jurors from which to select juries. In addition to suspending jury trials since mid-March, most courts stopped mailing jury summonses. This webinar will provide information to help jury operations ramp back up, including recommendations for excusal, deferral, and FTA policies. It will also address concerns about jury pools that may underrepresent racial and ethnic minorities due to their increased risk of severe health consequences from the coronavirus. Panelists TBD.
