What if the United States did not have the right to trial by jury? How would the court system be different?
Legal system in the parlance of criminal justice entails the process of arrest, investigation, trial and finally sentencing. In jurisdictions like the US, they have a unique system where it’s not only the judge who decides the fate of an accused person but also through unanimous decision of what is referred to as the jury. The jury is part and parcel of the court judgment making process, though members of the jury are not necessarily lawyers but people drawn from the society who are of good standing and must be citizens of America. This paper therefore intends to discuss how jury is summoned among other things in its subsequent paragraphs.
