Jury Research


You have been hired as a consultant to a research project on the effect of different sizes of juries in the justice system. A local court system has agreed to randomly assign their cases needing jury trial to juries of either 6 or 12 people. You will be given access to the juries, their deliberations, and all court documents. You job is to design a study that allows you to investigate whether 6 or 12 person juries are more efficient and just.
