The Civil Jury in America
This chapter addresses questions regarding the function of the modern jury. These include why juries have been given so important a place in the judicial process, and how the jury ought to be constituted to carry out its work. The chapter also examines the process used to select a jury, instructions used to structure decision-making, and the nature and form of jury verdicts. Despite many challenges to the jury system, careful assessment suggests that juries are still a necessary and effective part of the judicial system.
