To be or not to be on a jury?


In the balance of things I am glad to have served my jury duty. It was service and it was duty, some of it was tedious in extreme, most of it was about making difficult and responsible decisions. I was grateful to serve with other people who took the job seriously, and were careful to be fair and analytical about the facts. I was glad to have witnessed the process of law and I have new respect for the role of the crown court judge, and insight into the role of the bewigged barristers. I sincerely hope I don't find my way back there too soon. Although the staff were extremely kind and courteous to all of us...they all did say, with a twinkle in their eyes, "We hope we don't see you back too soon!"

I've always wondered how it would be like...Is it something I would look forward to? Say Hi to LL when she's there! Hahaha...

Hello wmw! I will tell LL you left a message - no doubt she will get a post in at my place! Thanks for stopping by. I think jury is an interesting insight on how law works here in the UK. I don't know enough about it for anywhere else - not as exciting as the legal thrillers though or Rumpole!
