The Verdict on Juries
On April 20, 2005, at 1:00 pm Eastern, the ABA connection is presenting a one-hour CLE teleconference titled, “The Verdict on Juries.”
The ABA House of Delegates passed a series of recommendations by the Commission on the American Jury to revive the public’s faith in the jury system and to help stem recent trends away from using juries to decide cases. This program will take an initial look at the recommendations of the commission and explore how they might help to bolster the jury system.
The ABA Journal article and teleconference will also take a broader look at what is happening in individual states in jury reform. The program is sponsored by the ABA Journal, Membership and Marketing, and the Center for Continuing Legal Education and cosponsored by the Section of Litigation; the General Practice, Solo and Small Firm Division; and the Judicial Division. CLE credit has been applied for in states that accept the teleconference format.
