Jury decision-making

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


In contrast with many of their European counterparts, juries in the UK are located within an adversarial, as opposed to inquisitorial, system. Under adversarial systems, a jury typically comprises a group of ordinary members of society who are required to evaluate the evidence presented at trial. After the hearing the evidence in court, and receiving judge's instructions on the relevant points of law, the jury retires to deliberate over the facts and reach a verdict as to the guilt or innocence of the defendant.
