Abstract
In recent decades, the American jury has increasingly come under attack by critics who maintain that jurors are too often uninformed, irresponsible, biased, unable or unwilling to follow instructions, and incapable of understanding scientific and expert evidence. In American Juries, Neil Vidmar and Valerie Hans, two of the nationʼs foremost experts on jury trials, consider, evaluate, and largely reject these criticisms.
