Abstract

In this paper, Professor Darbyshire revisits the recommendations she made in her 2001 meta- analysis of jury research for Lord Justice Auld, for his Review of the Criminal Courts of England and Wales. She explores the outcomes of her recommendations. Lord Justice Auld adopted most of them. One was highly successful and resulted in a doubling of the pool of potential jurors but this has caused some problems in practice and arguments in the courts. Others were not implemented by the UK Parliament or not favoured by the Government. Professor Darbyshire renews her call for some important recommendations to be implemented in law or practice. In this paper, there is food for thought and debate in all jurisdictions that use jury trial.
