Summary Juries hold an important place in the Australian court system. Members of the community, not the judges, lawyer or experts decide the facts in a case the determine the guilt of the accused. We suspect many would be unaware of a court’s expectation of them, including being exposed to the graphic nature of some offending and other unfortunate circumstances, and the effect on victims and the accused about whom they may have to stand in judgment. While there has been much research in the area, we do not yet understand the full impact on jurors of performing their important role. However, we do know that for most people who travel the full juror journey, from being randomly selected for service to delivering a verdict in a trial, the experience is interesting, satisfying and rewarding. We know for others, there may be a lingering or even lasting impact, sometimes adverse and debilitating, and it is important that we do the very best we can to support them. This report explores the impact of jury service on citizens and the role courts play in supporting jurors. It also produces two tiers for better supporting our jurors.
