What’s going on in the jury deliberation room? The 25th Annual Litigation Institute will try to answer this question by focusing on juror behavior through the lens of today’s social and political environment. 24/7 news programming, both real and fake, creates and fills a demand for immediate information reported as it happens. Social media supplies facts and alternative facts. How does this constant barrage affect a juror’s ability to follow a judge’s instructions on the facts and the law? A judges panel moderated by Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas Balmer, jury and research experts, and seasoned trial attorneys will try to answer these and other questions. Hear from the lawyers who tried the Malheur occupation cases and the tremendous obstacles involved in picking juries in such widely publicized and emotionally charged circumstances. Examine decisions civil lawyers can make that can impair a criminal defense. Learn about pro-bono efforts to champion access to justice, as well as legal ethics and social media.
The 21st Annual Owen M. Panner Professionalism Award will be presented to Robert Shlachter, Stoll Stoll Berne Lokting & Shlachter PC, Portland.
