Jury selection, while governed by statutes and procedure, is as much art as law. How can you identify jurors who will be sympathetic to your case, while also establishing the rapport necessary to engage them with your narrative of events? Understanding your jurors as people first and foremost is key to humanizing your client to the jury.
