Nevada Justice Association’s 41st Annual Convention
Portland, oregon (October 2017)
Presenters: Nick and Courtney Rowley
Topic: Brutal Honesty (1:50:00)
Nick and Courtney discuss and demonstrate how to use the Brutal Honesty technique during jury selection. Step by step they explain how this technique can help get a jury to talk. They emphasize the importance of showing respect and appreciation when jurors do open up, even if you disagree with them. The most important thing is getting people talking so that you can find out if they will be able to be fair and impartial jurors.
During their presentation they also talk about the benefits of using visuals, encourage everyone to go to battle (take your cases to trial), and discuss the importance of spending time with the people you are representing in order to have a human to human connection.
