Verdict: Assessing the Civil Jury System

Verdict: Assessing the Civil Jury System

by Robert E. Litan




In this book, a distinguished group of scholars, attorneys, and judges examine the civil jury system and discuss whether certain features should be modified or reformed. The book features papers presented at a conference cosponsored by the Brookings Insti-tution and the Litigation Section of the American Bar Association, together with an introductory chapter by Robert E. Litan. While the authors present competing views of the objectives of the civil jury system, all agree that the jury still has and will to have an important role in the American system of civil justice.
