Professor Mark Findlay comments on the issue of trial by jury

14 August 2008

Australia Talks on ABC Radio's Radio National interviewed Professor Mark Findlay recently in relation to the topic of the jury system.

The interview examined whether trial by jury is always the best way of delivering just outcomes.

Professor Findlay stated that information has been traditionally "ferreted away" from jurors.

"Fictional legal television shows such as CSI has led to many jurors feeling as if cases are half-baked," Professor Findlay said.
