    Scientific evidence plays an important role in our daily lives and at trial. While there have always been skeptics, there has been a growing cynicism toward science in recent years, with anti-vaxxers, disputes over climate change and the acceptance of alternative facts. The cynicism is also evident in the courtroom, with accounts of jurors' disregard for scientific evidence, and judges calling expert testimony "junk science" and dismissing verdicts for lack of evidence. There have even been voir dire questions about beliefs in UFOs and extraterrestrials.

    Now with COVID-19, scientific evidence is front and center, and in the headlines every day. Will the information and misinformation about the virus change juror attitudes? Will jurors come to trust science more, or will they approach scientific evidence with even more skepticism?  In this age, can you convince a jury with science or will fiction rule the day?

    A federal judge and seasoned jury consultant will discuss recent trends in the courtroom related to scientific evidence, and how to recognize and deal with science-doubters. What causes rational jurors to overlook scientific evidence? Will smarter jurors get it, or actually hurt you? What qualities or traits add to your expert's credibility, and what do jurors need to see/hear from them?

    •Overview of the growing skepticism toward scientific evidence in the courtroom
    •Factors causing this growing skepticism
    •Potential impact of COVID-19 on juror attitudes moving forward
    •How to identify the science skeptics vs. believers in jury selection
    •How expert witnesses can establish credibility, and gain juror's trust

    Litigators, particularly those who deal with scientific, economic, or other technical data, including patent, product liability, medical malpractice, personal injury, antitrust matters.
