As you all know, the annual FJA Jury Selection Seminar is this Friday in Miami. If you have a jury selection problem or a particular area of concern in an upcoming jury trial, send me an email by this Wednesday, and I will make sure one of our speakers addresses it during the program. This should be a great seminar.
The agenda and speakers are as follows:

Welcome and Introductory Remarks
