Brandon Berg Speaking on the Modern Juror at TADC 2018

February 1, 2018

Brandon Berg will be speaking at the Texas Association of Defense Counsel Winter Seminar on February 1, 2018. He will be presenting " The i-Phone Generation - Selecting Today's Juror." A brief discription of the presentation is below:

Following the information explosion and proliferation of social media, the manner in which juries are selected must be adapted. This presentation will explore the ethics of conducting juror background checks via their social media profiles and internet presence. The presentation will also focus on how to utilize technology in evidence presentation to fit with how a modern jury learns, incorporates, and processes information and resulting conclusions. The old way of jury trials has to yield to the development of new ways to capture short attention spans caused by changes in information processing. The presentation is a useful tool for all lines of business where the risk and controversy could be subject to a trial on the merits.
