Pre-Trial Publicity, Ethics and the ‘13th Juror’ Phenomenon

  • 8:30 AM to 11:00 AM
  • Africa Room, Duquesne Student Union

This Ethics for Breakfast Continuing Legal Education (CLE) seminar will examine the "13th Juror" rule. When the jury's verdict contradicts the great weight of the evidence, the trial judge is authorized to set aside that verdict and order a new trial. This seminar will be offered both in-person and online. Sponsored by the Cyril H. Wecht Institute for Forensic Science and Law.
