The U.S. Constitution guarantees citizens the right to fair trials by jury. However, without people to participate in jury service these fair trials would be impossible. Jurors and judges work together to determine the fate of criminal and civil cases. The people chosen to serve on a jury come from all backgrounds to provide a proper representation of the U.S. population. This book explains every aspect of jury service, from juror selection to juror duties. Information about the history of U.S. trials by jury aids readers in understanding the importance of this civic duty.
