Judges will give lecture on jury selection and deliberations at Brooklyn Bar Association
A pair of Brooklyn’s most esteemed judges will be at the Brooklyn Bar Association on Thursday for a continuing legal education seminar titled “Issues Arising from Jury Selection and Deliberation.”
Judges Ruth Shillingford, president of the Judicial Friends Association, and Hon. Sylvia Ash, presiding justice of the Kings County Supreme Court, Commercial Division, will be the guest lecturers during the CLE, which is sponsored by both the Judicial Friends and the BBA.
“Attendees will benefit from both a civil and criminal perspective,” said BBA President David Chidekel. “There will be time to answer questions from attendees, permitting them to sharpen their skills and dispel myths.”
The CLE was originally designed by Judge Shillingford for the purpose of teaching new judges, but it became so popular that she expanded the target demographic.
