What questions can I ask a jury if I’m representing myself?

I'm representing myself with no help from a court appointed attorney and I don't know legal boundaries.

    it is impossible to answer your question as stated...what's the charge? what evidence do they have? why aren't you using a public defender? has the judge told you you weren't eligible for appointed counsel? or did judge tell you you wouldn't go to jail? do you have too much income to qualify for public defender? include more info the next time you submit a question here.

    If you do not know legal boundaries and think you can get enough advice over the internet to represent you then you are not thinking clearly. When I ask questions of prospective jurors I am relaying on the facts of the case and the type of charge and the defense in order to decide what questions will ask. You should consider getting a lawyer to help you at least.

    Really believe you need an attorney based on this question. What are you in court for. . Criminal or civil? Has a jury been selected?

    I what very strongly heard you to be represented by lawyer for this very reason. I assume from your question that you are speaking of voir dire, or jury selection as that is the only appropriate time for you to ask potential jury members questions. You can ask them anything that might affect their ability to be fair or impartial in your particular case. I would suggest going to the nearest law library and look for books on jury selection.
