The Jury System in a Free Society
The jury system is central to Anglo-American thinking about the protection of individual liberty. The aim of the conference was to explore the role trial by jury plays in a society of free and responsible individuals, and to include a historical overview of the jury process, current controversies, and the proper standard for measuring procedural success.
