Plaintiff’s lawyers are now faced with a sudden and unexpected shift in American culture that has radically changed how jurors think and delib­erate. Incorrect assumptions about who the best and worst jurors may be for your client’s case can lead you to striking jurors who would have returned the best verdict for your client.

In this presentation, David Ball and Artemis Malekpour share their lat­est insights on plaintiff’s advocacy. They teach you how to create, and become part of, a cohesive group whose purpose is to provide justice and improve community safety.

David and Artemis focus on how to change and refine your methods to work in today’s fractious social climate. They discuss jurors’ changing views on scientific proof, feelings of alienation, and views of authority fig­ures. This lecture also covers David Ball’s most recent thinking on using Rules of the Road™ in your cases.

David and Artemis also introduce a set of powerful tools to present dam­ages during opening and closing statements that are not included in David Ball on Damages. These tools will help you strengthen your open­ing and empower your jurors to return the verdict you seek in closing.

Lastly, the final section is a special all-star panel discussion with David Ball, Artemis Malekpour, Joshua Karton, and Eric Oliver, that provides additional valuable insights on how you can succeed with today’s jurors.
