Summary

Abstract

Each year more than 50,000 people play an important role in the administration of justice in New South Wales by performing jury service. Because the jury system is administered at a number of different centres throughout the State there have been few opportunities for determining how representative jurors are of the general community. Nor have jurors had the opportunity in the past to share with the authorities their views on the duties they are called upon to perform, the conditions under which they perform them and possible ways of enhancing the contribution they make to the work of the courts.
