Northwestern University School of Law, the American Bar Association, and the American Bar Foundation are pleased to co-host the 2012 National Symposium on the American Jury System, Thursday, October 4 and Friday, October 5, 2012 in Chicago, IL.
The Optimal Jury Trial is the theme of the 2012 National Symposium on the American Jury System. The symposium will use a pair of parallel simulated civil and criminal trials to reveal the challenges faced by the modern jury and how the jury trial can be enhanced with modern jury procedures. By showing, not merely describing, how these jury procedures can realistically and efficiently be implemented, the symposium will demonstrate how to produce a jury trial in which the parties, the jurors, and the public receive optimal treatment. Expert panelists, including state and federal judges, attorneys, jury scholars, and jurors will discuss these modern jury procedures, giving additional attention to controversial reforms and the continuing challenges of electronic media. Current jury procedures will be compared with realistic reform.
