Pattern Voir Dire Questions is a collection of more than 2,000 trial-tested voir dire questions, spanning a broad range of civil and criminal cases. The sample questions and voir dire strategies outlined in Pattern Voir Dire Questions will help you reveal hidden juror biases, get more jurors excused for cause, and make smart decisions about exercising peremptory strikes.

Pattern Voir Dire Questions will help you ask the right questions, in a way that encourages jurors to speak their minds, so that you can make informed decisions about exercising your peremptory strikes. Pattern Voir Dire Questions gives you a model voir dire for 26 types of cases, and multiple fact scenarios. Each voir dire begins with questions about the jurors’ background and case-related experiences, and builds toward more sensitive questions about jurors’ attitudes toward your client and the key issues in your case.

In addition to the sample questions, Pattern Voir Dire Questions provides you with tips and practical advice based on author Susan Broome’s 20 years’ experience working with trial attorneys. You will learn:

  • How to deal with the silent juror;
  • How to curb the juror who won’t stop talking;
  • How to categorize a prospective juror as a leader, a consensus builder, a follower, or a “hanger”;
  • Why “agree or disagree” question are so effective;
  • The simplest way to build rapport with jurors at the beginning of voir dire;
  • How to broach the subject of religion and why it is important to determine a juror’s religious beliefs in every case;
  • The two most important influences on jurors in a personal injury lawsuit;
  • How jurors allocate fault in a personal injury suit;
  • What you can learn from demographic questions, e.g., how a juror feels about her neighborhood, in a criminal prosecution;
  • How to raise a challenge for cause;
  • How to rehabilitate a juror challenged for cause;
  • Why questions about fairness and impartiality are a waste of time.
