The Impact of Social Media on Jury Selection, Retention and Decision-Making

Social media is here to stay. Most lawyers have addressed social media and its impact on the litigation process. However, now social media also invades the courtroom setting. Courts have had to create new rules on courtroom decorum. The concept of sequestering a jury has changed completely. The impact of social media on screening jurors has altered how many lawyers select a jury. Just as we Google® opposing counsel, lawyers now have access to information on jurors that perhaps they should not have. Is this helping jury selection and retention or hurting it? Social media can also impact the jury decision-making process, or provide insight into how a juror is looking at the case. Many lawyers and judges don't yet know what to do with such information.

This OnDemand Webinar will cover the ramifications of using social media in screening jurors, and in investigation of jury conduct during a trial. This program will take you through real life examples of how social media has positively and negatively impacted the jury selection process, as well as the retention of jurors who might use social media to discuss a case during the trial. It will cover how a juror's knowledge of social media might impact your case. This OnDemand Webinar will cover when it might be important to look at a prospective juror's "social media profile" to select a "tech-savvy" juror in a case involving, for example, significant e-discovery. Finally, it will provide practice pointers on how you can best use social media in jury selection/investigation while avoiding the risks attendant with such use.
