Foreperson and Pro Tem Workshops

California Grand Jurors’ Association
Foreperson and Pro Tem Workshop


(Postponed due to coronavirus)


CGJA had planned to offer four Foreperson and Pro Tem Workshops in 2020 at various locations throughout the state. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the workshops will be rescheduled for a time when in-person training is possible or will be conducted virtually. More information will be available here soon.


Registration will open once dates and times have been determined.


Program Description:

This one-day workshop covers the leadership responsibilities of the foreperson, pro tem, and other officers of the grand jury. Topics include: how to get started; useful techniques for organizing, coordinating, and facilitating the grand jury’s work; team building; California law as it applies to the foreperson’s duties and responsibilities; the administrative and leadership roles of the foreperson and pro tem; dealing with interpersonal issues among jurors; and conflict resolution techniques. Participants take part in group activities to enhance the learning experience through the sharing of ideas.
