Freedom Friday: Lunch Break for Liberty


Update 4/18/2011: The video linked below has been made private by the owner but you can still find out what you can do as a juror by clicking the links in the post below.

In this week’s Freedom Friday video, Cindy Franklin discusses how to get on a jury. This approximately 5 minute video includes a number of tips on what might lead a judge, prosecutor, or defender to exclude you from a jury. Remember- you must get onto the jury before you can exercise your right to nullify bad law! If you are called for jury or know someone who is, keep in mind FIJA’s handy brochure entitled Surviving Voir Dire: How to Get on a Jury (pdf), which you can download free from our online Library or order from our Media Catalog.

We invite you to take a moment during your lunch break today to distribute the link to this blog post to your friends and family via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc. If you would like to recommend a jury-related video for Freedom Friday, let us know in the FIJA forum or by sending an e-mail to us at aji(at)fija.org/aie653l.
