Zoom with a Judge: Trial by Jury (8-12)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This event is organized by the Discovering Justice.

A trial by jury is extremely rare in the criminal justice system; in 2018, only 2% of federal criminal cases went to trial. This is the norm. But why? Our panelists and students will explore the benefits and challenges of the American jury system as it is today. Join our Zoom with a Judge to explore this essential question: Does the American jury system bring about justice?

Please note that an additional registration step is required for this event. Please register for this event here to receive the Zoom meeting details.
