This classic of jurisprudence, first published in 1906 and difficult to find outside law libraries, remains the authoritative volume on the grand jury system in the United States to this day.
Here, GEORGE JOHN EDWARDS (b. 1875) comprehensively examines the concept and practice of the grand jury:
• its origin in the institutions of Norman law
• early historical cases of interest
• the beginnings of secrecy of grand juries
• the selection of grand jurors and the composition of a grand jury
• the rights and obligations of attorneys facing grand juries
• the oaths, powers, and duties of grand juries
• how the grand jury transacts business
• the relationship of the grand jury to the court
• and more.
