Crj 306 week 2 discussion 2


Week 2 – Discussion 2 

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Refer to the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric under the Settings icon above for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.


Voir Dire or Opening   Statements 

To complete this assignment, after you record your presentation in YouSeeU, you will want to paste the URL for this video in the discussion forum for your classmates and instructor to review and provide responses to. Please review the YouSeeU User Guide                      which provides step by step instructions for completing this assignment in the YouSeeU platform.

  • If your last name begins with      the letters A through M: Prepare      a two- to three-minute video presentation with YouSeeU detailing the following information:
    • Explain the legal term voir       dire, its origins and its purposes.
    • Detail the process of voir       dire, and distinguish between preemptory and discretionary strikes of       potential jury members.
    • Provide an opinion of whether       or not the process of voir dire serves its stated ends.
    • Create improvements in the       current system of voir dire to ensure fair and impartial jurors       for criminal trials.

As you know from the reading and video materials for this week, the term voir dire literally means truth. Your YouSeeU presentation must show a comprehensive understanding of the process of voir dire and its significance in a criminal trial. Make sure that your video presentation explains whether or not a defendant is entitled to a “fair” or a perfect jury. You also need to distinguish between preemptory strikes of jurors vs. strikes for cause of potential jurors.

  • If your last name begins with      the letters N through Z: Prepare      a two- to three-minute video presentation with YouSeeU detailing the following information:
    • Explain the purposes of       opening statements in a criminal trial.
    • Detail the order in which       opening statements occur to the jury, and comment on whether or not this       ordering seems the most fair or not.
    • Provide an opinion on the       significance of opening statements; are jury trials won or lost at this       stage of the proceeding and why?
    • Create improvements to the       current system of opening statements to insure that the truth is       ascertained through the trial process.

As you know from the reading and video materials for this week, opening statements are not opening arguments. Instead, lawyers are required to state simply what the facts of the case will show and what will be proven at trial. Examine the notion of latitude given to attorneys from some judges to argue their cases in the opening statements. Should such actions be allowed: why or why not?

Please note that oral presentations will take place in the YouSeeU interface. This oral presentation will be available for both the instructor and your fellow classmates to view.
