Davis Annual Reality Trial CLE “A Civil Jury Trial – A View From the Jury Box” SAVE THE DATE Monday, October 9, 2023 (Indigenous Peoples Day) 9:00 am – 4:45 pm Arlington County Courthouse Seven (7) MCLE credits including one (1) hour in ethics (approved)

Be part of a live, interactive and unique experience Watch experienced trial attorneys conduct a civil jury trial Watch the live feed into the courtroom as the jurors deliberate: How do they deliberate? What do they discuss? Do they follow jury instructions? What do they consider important/unimportant? How do they perceive clients, witnesses, and their attorneys? Do they ignore stricken evidence? How do they actually reach a verdict? Participate in post-verdict discussions with the jurors Take away invaluable and practical lessons and tips on how to communicate with and learn from real jurors Here is just some of the feedback from past attendees of this popular CLE:

“This is the third one of these I’ve been to. I have 30 CLE hours so far this year. This is an excellent format. The idea of watching the jury and how they deliberate—you can’t put a money amount on that!” “It’s the most practical CLE you can get!” “I had my own thoughts in my head. I wanted to see if the jurors matched up with that.” “We got to see in real time what the jury got stuck on and what they went through really quickly.” “It was an excellent CLE and very relevant to my heavy litigation practice. It is rare that a practitioner has a chance to get into the minds of the jurors…This seminar helped me to shape the manner in which I present cases to a jury and illustrations that I use…I highly recommend this CLE!” “The ‘Reality’ CLE programs of the Arlington Bar are incredibly unique and wholly different from all other CLE programs I have attended in the past 20 years. The elusive holy grail of trial work is being able to actually observe the impression one is making onto the jury…” “With video cameras and other technology, the Reality CLE series is incredibly…well, realistic. I was a fly on the wall in an actual jury trial from start to verdict and I knew exactly what worked and did not work with the jury. I could see and hear them deliberating. It was very insightful.” “…The CLE was entertaining, informative and a very efficient way to obtain CLE credits. It provided valuable insight into jury deliberations that would not otherwise be possible. In addition, it allowed the observers to see the real impact, or lack thereof, in selecting preemptory strikes. Great value for the money while providing substantive information.”
