Description

Easy access to information has many benefits. We are more informed, more aware and hopefully more knowledgeable about what is happening in our neighborhoods, our cities and around the world. And yet, our easy access to information can have a disabling effect on one of the country’s most venerable institutions—the legal process’ trial by jury. A juror’s ability to search for information on the court case he is sitting on raises serious questions about impartiality, courtroom control and the judiciousness of verdicts. In this exciting and timely CLE course, esteemed attorney Benjamin Brafman, Esq. will discuss the dangers of jurors who use Google and other search engines to conduct their own investigations and learn about a case on trial, defendants, prosecutors or the attorneys themselves. The course will explain what lawyers and judges need to know and how to deliver special instructions to juries.
