- Jurors are there because they take their duties seriously.
- Most lawyers lack empathy for jurors.
- Jurors use instructions as tools to create justice.
I confess: I used to not trust juries. In fact, I did not believe in the jury system. And even though I tried cases to juries, I did not believe in the very people whom I was trying to convince. Honestly, and it pains me to even write this, I thought that most jurors were basically incapable of understanding the law, and didn’t care much either.
