Attorney Sidebar: Jury Selection

Norma Foster Adams

I’d rather have a younger jury, and that’s something that most people who defend don’t want. But I feel that they are willing to sit and think through the complicated issues more than older people who have become set in their ways and set in their ideas. On the other hand, if they’re going to give a verdict, probably the older people will hold back the size of it, because they don’t think in the same terms of dollar amounts. So it’s a mixed bag.
