Book review: Secrets of the Jury Room

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Malcolm Knox develops the paradox that jurors charged with immense responsibilities are required to work in a fairly hostile work environment without fundamental assistance and tools. This is a provocative book that poses a challenge to NSW courts from an important constituent group that is effectively silenced. By breaking the silence, Knox has shifted responsibility to New South Wales policy-makers, law reformers, practitioners and researchers to respond. Reforms are advocated to: (a) representativeness of the jury; (b) the physical work environment; (c) communications between courts and juries; and (d) deliberation procedures.
