Jury Selection and Structure of the Trial Jury

The following improvements facilitate jury selection:

  • Judicial officer education - Section 10.469(b) of the California Standards of Judicial Administration, promotes judicial officer education on the treatment of jurors and on conducting jury trials, in particular the process of jury selection (voir dire) through use of CJER materials and programs.
  • Standard criminal questionnaire - A questionnaire for use in jury selection in general criminal cases allows written examiniation of jurors.
