Benefits of Female Trial Counsel: Views From the Box

Partner Cristina Rodriguez spoke on the panel "Benefits of Female Trial Counsel: Views From the Box" at the conference Promoting Women as Lead Counsel, held in Houston on February 23, 2017.

This panel explored the views and perceptions of juries and why jurors expect to see women taking active roles in trials. Other topics included the psychological impact that female trial counsel may have on some jurors, as well as the importance of diverse communication and litigation styles within trial teams. The panel also discussed litigation and advocacy benefits that can be overlooked or lost when trial teams are monolithic in appearance and approach and also considered how judges can prime a jury on the dangers of implicit bias.
