DESCRIPTION:

NEW! What do a judge, a defense attorney and a prosecutor look for in their jury selection? Who gets chosen and why? What is the impact of serving on a jury, of being sequestered or having a life or death decision rest in your hands? And, even more importantly, what is the history of this enigmatic system and what impacts on peoples’ approach to the whole concept of ‘punishment’? Join three judges, two attorneys and a panel of jurors for an in-depth look at this intriguing part of our justice system. Participants will hear about the history of the system from attorneys, judges and those who have served on a jury, capped off by a discussion of ‘punishment’ itself and our need to seek retribution.
