Episode 148: Uncovering the Truth About Discrimination in Jury Selection

Christopher Wright Durocher is joined by Professor Elisabeth Semel to talk about her recently released report, Guess Who’s Coming to Jury Duty? They discuss how too many courts don’t adequately track prospective jurors’ race and ethnicity and how the failure to take a race-conscious approach to jury selection and service results in the perpetuation of implicit, explicit, and institutional racial bias in our criminal legal system.
