Every year a quarter of a million people are selected at random from the electoral register for jury service. They are given no training and are forbidden to discuss their verdicts after the trial. Despite the high-profile trials of Louise Woodward and O.J. Simpson, astonishingly little is known about what it's like to serve on a jury: this book is the first to reveal it.

Jurymans Tale based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
A quite remarkable first hand account of British jury service with a handful of likely excellent advices for how to do trial by jury and how to be jury. Journalist Trevor Grove is called to a lengthy kidnapping trial. Jury members are not suppose to ever speak about the trial. Grove goes forward anyway, though only gives elusive hints on what went on in the heads of they juries.
