$ 59 Constitutional Law In Stock

On June 9, 2016, the United States Supreme Court issued a decision that is destined to alter the face of jury trials across the nation. There, the Court -- sharply divided -- ruled that even after jurors are discharged, and they have been relieved from jury service, federal district court judges may call the jurors back. This holding is particularly alarming in this era of cellphone and instant Internet communications that may influence jurors.

Experienced Supreme Court practitioner Erica Dubno discusses this important recent decision and its consequences. Counsel also uses Dietz v. Bouldin to illustrate the process -- including tips and techniques -- for navigating a case through the Supreme Court. This course is relevant for practitioners at all levels.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the history, procedures, arguments and holding of recent Supreme Court authority
  2. Consider the consequences of Supreme Court authority on other types of cases
  3. Develop techniques on identifying issues for Supreme Court consideration, drafting compelling Petitions for Certiorari and preparing for oral argument

Very thorough and excellent presentation. One of the best CLEs I've taken recently. Detailed enough for those whose main practice is federal litigation, but presented in a fashion that was interesting and accessible to someone like myself, who doesn't deal with juries often.
