The common law jury system is a prime example of a traditional legal institution that is not only benefitting from technological advances but is struggling to keep up with the demands that technology is placing on it.

Some commentators are concerned that the integrity of the common law jury system is under severe threat from the impact of new technology. Some jurisdictions have introduced laws in an effort to limit the intrusion of technology into the jury trial, but with little effect.

This book explores how technology is impacting upon the common law jury trial. Horan identifies and discusses how technology is impacting on the contemporary common law jury system, provides jury law practitioners with insights on how they might utilise these new conditions to their benefit and suggests paths for jury law reform in a digital age.
