While much fundamental research in the recent past has been devoted to the criminal jury in England up to 1800, there has been little work on the nineteenth century, and on the civil jury.

While much fundamental research in the recent past has been devoted to the criminal jury in England up to 1800, there has been little work on the nineteenth century, and on the civil jury. This important study fills these obvious gaps in the literature. It also provides a re-assessment of standard issues such as jury lenity or equity, while raising questions about orthodoxies concerning the relationship of the jury to the development of laws of evidence. Moreover, re-assessment of the jury in nineteenth-century England rejects the thesis that juries were squeezed out by judges in favor of market principles. The book contributes a rounded picture of the jury as an institution, considering it in comparison to other modes of fact-finding, its development in both civil and criminal cases, and the significance, both practical and ideological, of its transplantation to North America and Scotland, while opening up new areas of investigation and research.
