Preserving the Jury System

Universally, the jury system has long been viewed as one of the greatest methods for enabling justice to prevail. The concept of judgment by one's peers is both fundamentally sound and highly symbolic in a healthy society. A criminal jury is made up of 12 people. A civil jury is made up of eight. These structures need to be maintained. Any efforts to dismantle the jury system are strongly opposed by TLABC.
