The InQuiring Lawyer Dialogue: Does Popular Culture Influence Lawyers, Judges, and Juries? – Part II

By Burg Simpson

March 2, 2015  

Part II of this series examines ways lawyers have tried to take advantage of, or negate, the potentially powerful shadows that popular culture casts on civil and criminal trials. A juror is interviewed for his comparison of a recent trial to what he had previously seen on TV and in the movies, and here his expectations versus his experience on the jury is examined.

“The InQuiring Lawyer,” a special section of The Colorado Lawyer, addresses topics in a round table discussion with judges, lawyers, law students and professors, politicians, economists, business leaders, entrepreneurs, journalists, gadflies, children, “and know-it-alls, (myself included),” remarks Mr. Sandgrund.
