Jury Verdicts and Jury Research Methodology Lectures – Now available for download from ‘The Legal Profession’ Subject Series SSRN eLibrary

For anyone wishing to know how the jury system works in western democracies in general, and in the United Kingdom in particular, this lecture note series will provide ample introduction to how juries both work and reason. The lectures outline legal empirical approaches to the study of juries and jury decision-making behaviour for laymen including undergraduate students of sociology, criminology and legal systems, and forensic psychology.

The note series is divided into two lectures. The first lecture attends to the background relevant to the historical rise of juries and socio-legal methodologies used to understand jury behaviour. The second lecture attends to questions surrounding jury competence, classic studies illustrative of juror bias, and a critical comparison of juries to legal alternatives not reliant on jury deliberation for judicial process. Where appropriate the note series indicates key readings relevant to each core component of the note series, for students to develop their understanding in self-study time.
