This year we are focusing on the changing face of the San Francisco jury pool and the need to secure and ensure more diverse jury panels. The program will open with a short presentation by a jury consultant Jim Stiff, Focal Point on how the demographics of San Francisco juries have changed over the last decade. It will be followed by a moderated discussion among Justice Goodwin Liu, who authored a separate opinion concurring in the California Supreme decision in People v. Gutierrez (on Batson • Wheeler challenges), San Francisco Superior Court Presiding Judge Teri Jackson, and U.S. District Judge Haywood Gilliam. The moderator is Professor David Carrillo of Berkeley School of Law.

The conference will include small group discussions with a reception to follow.
