About Jury Selection

Jury selection refers to the process by which trial attorneys choose which members of the public are chosen from the jury pool to sit on the jury in a trial by jury.  Closely related to jury selection is voir dire, the system of examination whereby both the prosecution (or plaintiff, in a civil case) and defense can object to a juror. May attorneys believe that a jury trial is won or lost in the jury selection phase.  This page collects library resources to devoted to the art and science of selecting a jury.
