Rick Foster joined a panel of judges and lawyers to share jury selection insights as part of the webcast “Hot Topics in Trial—Jury Selection and Jury Questions” presented by the ISBA Tort Law Section on April 4, 2018.
The session covered the process of jury selection; the importance of jury questions during trial; what judges see and hear in their courtrooms during the selection process; best practices for selecting a jury; and views on jury selection from the plaintiff and defense perspective.
Foster represented the defense bar on the panel, which consisted of a plaintiffs’ lawyer and two judges: the Hon. Elizabeth M. Budzinski, Circuit Court of Cook County, Chicago and the Hon. Thomas V. Lyons II, Circuit Court of Cook County, Chicago.
