The American Board of Trial Advocates will be hosting their Law School Symposium at UT Law on Thursday, April 6th from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. This year's symposium...A More Perfect Jury: Seating a Diverse Panel

The right to a trial by jury is central to the justice system and our democracy. The function and proper use of the peremptory challenge sits at the center of that right. During this symposium, lawyers, judges, law students, and experts will work to understand and improve the exercise of this critical tool, explore where our jury pools come from, and understand why a diverse panel is so important.

This multi-year symposium will address challenges facing the American Jury System. Join us for the first installment, laying the groundwork for a discussion of the peremptory challenge.

Speakers: Paula Hannaford-Agor, Director of the Center for Jury Studies, National Center for State Courts; Professor Tracy McCormack, Co-Chair, ABOTA Foundation Professional Education Committee and Senior Lecturer, University of Texas School of Law; Professor Mary R.
