Questions that we will discuss include: How should a lawyer handle voir dire? What kind of jurors are you looking for? Is a juror with strong conservative views really an ideal juror for the defense in a sexual harassment or race discrimination case? We will also talk about how the actual trial needs to be approached in this era of political tribalism. For example, what arguments resonate best with jurors today including those with strong liberal views (e.

What It Takes to be a Trial Lawyer If You’re Not a Man: The Ethical, Professional, and Personal Costs of Confronting Gender Bias in the Courtroom

Program Number: 2906 Presenter: Lara Bazelon

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** Today, women make up more than one half of all law school graduates. Yet they remain dramatically underrepresented at the top echelons of the profession. Two thirds of state and federal judges are men, as are 83 percent of elected prosecutors; less than one percent are women of color. In the majority of law firms, large and small, women make up only a fraction of the powerful inner circle: partners who bring in clients, lead litigation teams, and sit on powerful management and compensation committees. In the coveted position of first chair at trial, the number of women shrinks further. In this MCLE, law professor and trial lawyer Lara Bazelon explores the systemic gender bias exhibited by judges, opposing counsel, jurors, or the clients themselves that impedes women’s

Program Number: 2860a Presenter: Alan Tuerkheimer, Esq.

Many times lawyers forget that picking a jury involves many of the same communication and decision-making skills used in everyday life. This seminar helps lawyers the next time they have to choose people in life and during jury selection.

Back to the Future: Criminal Insider Trading Under Title 18

Program Number: 2854 Presenter: Peter R. Dubrowski, Curtis B. Leitner, Jonathan S. Sack, Esq.

**** CD's are pre-order only and not available until after the program date - Online is not available until after the program date **** The government has brought charges for illegal insider trading primarily under the federal securities laws, chiefly Section 10 of the Securities Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5. In a small number of cases, the government has taken a different approach -- charging insider trading in violation of not only Rule 10b-5 but also Section 1348 of Title 18. That was the case in the the high-profile SDNY prosecution in United States v. Blaszczak et al., which involved trading on the basis of confidential information about prospective changes to Medicare reimbursement rates. In that case, the defendants were acquitted on the Rule 10b-5 charges but convicted on the Section 1348 charges, even though the charges related to the same securities trading. In this program, Jonathan Sack – a former chief of the criminal division in
