Voir Dire Survey

The Judicial Administration Section Council of the Maryland State Bar Association recently conducted a study of Voir Dire practices in Maryland for the purpose of providing information to practitioners and judges.  The Council developed a questionnaire which served as a data gathering instrument designed to assess the current practices throughout the State.

The survey was sent to all of the circuit court judges.  Judges from all of the 24 counties responded and their responses are sorted here both alphabetically and by county.  In addition to their responses, many of the judges attached documents reflecting specific practices within their jurisdictions.

The Judicial Administration Section Council would like to thank the judges who responded for taking time out of their busy schedules in order to support this worthwhile effort.
