More than 50 defense counsel, mitigation specialists, and paralegals from the Arizona public defender system received training on the Colorado method of voir dire, a capital-specific method of voir dire that is based in social psychology and informed by the findings of the Capital Jury Project. Professor Carpenter has been a faculty member of the National College of Capital Voir Dire since 2011.
