• 5:00-7:00 PM EDT
  • In this program, Dr. Erin Tone, Chair of the Clinical Psychology Program at Georgia State University and Denise de La Rue, a Jury and Trial Consultant, will discuss their perspectives on how jurors receive information and make decisions that affect the lives of lawyers and litigants every day. In challenging us to re-think some traditional beliefs about concepts such as juror profiles, reading body language, and persuasive techniques, we might find ourselves willing to debunk a few trial myths, and focus more on understanding than certain predictability. Strategies for enhancing effective communication and persuasion in all aspects of a trial – voir dire through closing argument – will be explored. Erin and Denise will welcome questions and contributions to this inviting discussion. This event will be hybrid, so if you cannot attend in-person, choose the virtual RSVP option. This event qualifies for CLE credits.
