Editorial Reviews

Inquiring minds both young and old will benefit from this general overview of the jury system and its role in legal systems around the world. With decades' worth of film and television experience to his credit, actor Todd MacDonald presides over this case study, providing listeners a clear-cut and fluid understanding of juries' selection processes, responsibilities, and legal authorities. MacDonald traces the roots of the jury system back to Ancient Greece, and discusses its pros and cons as an integral part of democratic societies. Throughout, MacDonald keeps the proceedings lucid, informative, and well-paced.

Publisher's Summary

Learn about the development of the Jury System with iMindsJNR audio learning series for younger minds.
When someone accused of a crime goes to court, a decision is made on whether or not to punish them. This is done by either a judge or a jury. A judge has a job in law. But a jury is a group of everyday people who work together to decide if a suspect is innocent or guilty. Whether or not a jury is used depends on the matter being heard. In general, courts draw on juries when the matter is particularly serious. But to understand when and why a jury is used, it helps to know more about justice systems.
