Lisa Oberg will present, "Communicating to Juries After 2020 – Lessons Learned from the Pandemic, BLM, and Virtual Trials," at the 2022 DRI Toxic Torts & Environmental Law Seminar on Tuesday, March 15, 2022.

The pandemic upended jury trials as we have known them. Not only did potential jurors become more aware of scientific concepts such as dose, exposure, and epidemiology, they also became more aware of the continued unequal treatment of racial minorities in our country. Plus they had to serve on juries remotely while sitting in their living rooms. This panel will evaluate changes in jury perceptions as a result of COVID-19 and the Black Lives Matter movement, discuss lessons learned from virtual trials, and recommend strategies to communicate effectively to juries in the new normal.
