Civil Jury Conference at New York University School of Law

The civil jury trial is a vanishing feature of the American legal landscape. In 1962, juries resolved 5.5 percent of federal civil cases; since 2005, the rate has been below 1 percent.

What are the causes of the civil jury trial's near extinction? What are the consequences-for the legal system and society more broadly? And for those who advocate preserving and revitalizing the civil jury trial, what steps might be taken?

These will be the core areas of inquiry for the new Civil Jury Project at NYU School of Law.

Exclusive for Hunter students!
Seating is capped at 12. Students must submit a seat request through the link. Please request a seat at this link. Students will receive follow up confirmation. Wear office attire.

Date: Friday, September 11
Time: 8:45 am - 12:00 pm
Place: NYU School of Law, Lipton Hall, 108 West Third Street, New York
