Japanese Lay Participation in Criminal Trial and Knowledge of Law

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

New Mixed Jury Trial, called as “Saiban-in” system, started in Japan. This poster reports Japanese recognition about new mixed jury trial, criminal court, and knowledge of law. Our two research surveys show that most Japanese hesitate to take part in the trial because of the lack of legal knowledge and less opportunity of leaning about law and judicial process. It is important to enhance the concern about lay participation, and furthermore to encourage for citizens to have the chance learning the basic knowledge, the role of them and rule of decision making. Research suggests to reconsider pretrial procedure, too.
