A: Technically, yes. However, I do not suggest or encourage this. Jurors tend to be reluctant to discuss personal matters to begin with. Knowing that the party involved is in the room can make them even more reluctant to provide useful information during jury selection. It is very important to learn as much as possible about potential jurors given the strict time limitations we have during jury selection. We try as best as we can to maximize that time. Having the client present, may not be advantageous for their particular case.
