On May 1, Womble Bond Dickinson’s Atlanta office will host “ChIPs Atlanta: Juror Perception and Decision-Making - What We Know vs. What We Think We Know”. WBD Partner Christy Dupriest as well as Pamela Councill of Georgia State University College of Law will serve as moderators for the event.

Panelists Dr. Erin Tone, Clinical Psychology Program Chair at Georgia State University and Denise de La Rue, Jury and Trial Consultant will share their insights on how jurors process information and make daily decisions that affect both lawyers and litigants. Attendees will be challenged to reconsider ideas regarding conventional beliefs on juror profiles, body language interpretation, and persuasion. The session will also cover strategies for improving efficient communication and persuasion throughout the entirety of a trial, from jury selection to the final arguments.
