Over time, the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized the need to prevent discrimination in the jury selection process. The Supreme Court’s solution is based in the most fundamental aspect of our judiciary – the adversarial system. Lawyers are tasked with preventing discrimination based on race, gender, or ethnicity through voir dire and the Batson challenge. This webinar will give attorneys the tools they need to fulfill this vital role.   

What you will learn: 

  • The scope of the Batson challenge by examining the historical development of the challenge 

  • The role of voir dire in preventing discrimination 

  • The three-step process of a Batson challenge in Missouri state court 

  • When a Batson must be raised and preserving the issue for appeal 

The webinar will focus on concrete steps for you to use at your next trial, while emphasizing the important role lawyers play in preventing discrimination.
