• Methods of jury empanelment, for cause and peremptory challenges, etc.

Program and Massachusetts Jury Trial Benchbook: $115 —50% off the retail price of the book!
Distributed to every judge in Massachusetts, the Flaschner Judicial Institute’s Massachusetts Jury Trial Benchbook is a practical, 450 page “guide” that provides detailed advice and authoritative answers for nearly every jury issue that arises in the conduct of jury trials. Written by the co-chairs of this CLE—Judge Peter Lauriat and Judge Douglas Wilkins of the Superior Court—it is an essential “playbook” that Superior Court judges have on the bench and experienced trial lawyers have in their trial briefcases. It is even more essential for those lawyers who many not be in court every day and are not familiar with all the unexpected complexities that always seem to pop up in jury trials.
