People who serve on juries are more likely to involve themselves in democracy

    Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

    Abstract

    The jury system is often portrayed as ineffective, cumbersome, and riven with silent prejudices against defendants. But a growing body of research suggests otherwise, with juries generally performing their important functions admirably. Meredith Rossner argues that this is just one of many benefits, with jurors more likely to vote and involve themselves in civic matters, even if these things had held little appeal for them before their summons.
