    Abstract

    Social science research must displace myth, anecdote, and judicial hearsay in directing reform of the jury system. Drawing on the experiences of researchers from commonwealth countries, we explore why it has been so hard to undertake research on real juries. We also identify how the legal and institutional “barriers” might be lifted to facilitate an evidence-based approach to jury reform.
