Now that Massachusetts attorneys are allowed to question prospective jurors in civil and criminal trials throughout the Superior Court. Learn how to conduct voir dire from experts who have used it successfully.

With the passage of Chapter 254 of the Acts of 2014 last August, Massachusetts joined 39 other states that allow some form of attorney-conducted voir dire . The law not only permits attorneys to question potential jurors and screen for bias in Superior Court trials, it also allows attorneys to suggest a monetary amount for damages suffered by a plaintiff in a civil trial. The Massachusetts Bar Association advocated strongly for both measures.
