Selecting a Jury
One of the first steps in a trial is selecting a jury. How important do you think this step is? Is it possible to select a jury that will be more favorable to your client? If so, is that fair? What if your client has received negative media attention, is it still possible for him to receive a fair trial or will the jury ultimately be biased against him? Can you think of any trials that might have been impacted positively or negatively because of attention by the media?
