Criminal Jury Old And New: Jury Power From Early Times To The Present Day
This book is an account of the evolution of the jury and jury trial from early times to the present day including changes brought in by the Criminal Justice Act 2003 that widen the categories of people undertaking jury service.The Criminal Jury Old and New traces the genesis of the historic system of 'trial by peers' from its roots as a replacement for trial by ordeal through all its great legal and political landmarks. It shows how the jury changed and developed across the centuries to become a key democratic institution capable of resisting monarchs, governments, pressure and interference - and, on occasion, the plain words of the law. It also looks at such intriguing concepts as 'jury nullification', 'perverse verdicts' and 'pious perjury'.
