Overview

Psychologists and social scientists have recently undertaken systematic studies of the processes involved in the jurors' role in the courtroom. In the Jury Box is a collection of articles from the accumulating professional literature reflecting research into challenging issues such as: Does jury selection 'work'? Are jurors able to make unbiased judgements? Should complex cases be determined by an experienced judge rather than inexperienced laypersons? There are four sections, each on a different aspect of the jury process, and each containing an introduction and summary written by the volume editors to place it in an appropriate context and provide conclusions.
