About This Course

Never underestimate the importance of jury selection. Your opening remarks to a jury panel are usually the first words the jury hears concerning the facts of the case. We all know the importance of first impressions. Jurors begin forming impressions of the case from the first moment of the selection process.

Attorneys who approach jury selection as rote, redundant, boring, and an obligatory procedure are not serving their clients well. Focused, sharp attention must be paid to questions and responses throughout the entire jury selection process. These are the people deciding the fate of your case!

This CLE program, presented by Jeffrey M. Kimmel, one of New York’s leading civil trial attorneys, will explore and highlight the core aspects of jury selection. While styles and approaches to this process depend on individual personalities and strengths, a winning strategy will lead to success.


  • Develop and articulate the “ideal juror” for your case.
  • Consider the importance and significance of the jury selection process; do not underestimate its impact on the outcome of the case.
  • Grasp and understand the nuances of communicating with potential jurors, which includes LISTENING to them.
  • Learn how to prepare topics to discuss and questions to ask.
  • Create a strategy to deal with different types of adversaries in an unsupervised environment.
