Brian H. Bornstein, Amy J. Kleynhans

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article


A common criticism of jury simulation research is that it usually solicits individual judgments from mock jurors in the absence of group deliberation. This Article analyzes the evolution of jury, as opposed to juror, research methods over time. Part I discusses the pros and cons of different research methods; Part II provides a historical overview of jury deliberation research; Part III analyzes recently developed techniques for conducting jury research in the computer era; and Part IV speculates about the jury research of the future. The Article's final section offers a few concluding thoughts.
