In the introduction, the author points out that the stated goal of a "fair impartial jury" is generally the last thing a trial lawyer really wants. The first job of voir dire is to allow each side to eliminate the clearly hostile jurors. The next goal is to learn as much about the potential pool in order to make the best selection. A third goal is to begin the process of educating the jurors about the case and establishing credibility with this group who will be deciding the case.
