Japanese quasi-jury system: Who wants it?

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



Abstract:

They say that Japan's saiban-in seido, started in May 2009, is a synthesis of Anglo-American jury and continental European mixed court. Six saiban-in, or lay jurors, are selected for each trial, with three judges, for serious criminal cases. They decide
appropriate punishment together, if a majority of jurors and judges find guilty. But judges are bureaucrats; most are appointed of legal apprentices without practicing as lawyers, and will continue to be judges of similar trials together. Prosecutors and defending lawyers play similar roles as their counterparts in the U.S.A. A review is scheduled for the new system after three years.
