Welcome to the Commission on the American Jury. We are excited to be continuing the combined work of the American Jury Project and the Commission on the American Jury.
The Commission on the American Jury began in 2003 under the leadership of ABA President-Elect Robert J. Grey, Jr. His vision was to bring four ABA groups together to focus on the importance of the jury in the American democratic tradition as practiced at the beginning of the 21st Century by addressing key aspects of jury composition, comprehension, and culture.
The four ABA groups represented on this Commission include the Section of Litigation, the Tort, Trial and Insurance Practice Section, the Criminal Justice Section, and the Judicial Division. Each group appoints 3 members to the Commission.
