The notion of a trial by a jury of your peers dates back centuries. However, the movement to eliminate jury trials and allow for judge-only trials is swiftly gaining traction across Australia.
There are several reasons that a growing number of those in the legal profession give for wanting for a fairer system to decide guilt or innocence.
- In the age of the internet, finding a dozen unbiased and uninformed people is often a great challenge
- Transparency is a buzz word that carries the idea that nothing should be shrouded in mystery. Clearly, a jury’s deliberations are not within sight of the press and the public.
- A jury is never required to explain its decisions or offer a rationalisation for the punishment is suggests.
If you are facing a jury trial, we can help you be certain that the proceedings are as unbiased as possible.
