  • Description
    In a world of tweeting, texting and googling, the method and speed of our access to information has been transformed in recent years. But easy access to information is not a benefit in all forums. And in some, it is potentially destructive. A juror sitting on a case is theoretically limited to the information presented to make a determination. But with few clicks on his phone, he or she can easily learn everything the media and the blogging world knows about the case on trial, defendants, prosecutors or the attorneys themselves. This informative and timely CLE course, presented by esteemed attorney Benjamin Brafman, Esq., will explain the dangers in allowing jurors access to Google and other search engines while on trial, and he will explain what lawyers and judges need to know to prevent inappropriate courtroom conduct and how to craft special instructions to juries.
