Analyzing the decision-making process of the american jury


Journal Article

Extending earlier work by the authors [3, 4], this article examines in more detail the internal and external behavior of a jury. The internal analysis sheds light on the decision-making process from the first ballot position to the final outcome. Data in Kalven and Zeisel [6] have been employed to test the tenability of the models. The external analysis explores questions regarding the correctness of jury decisions and the effect of changes in jury size and in majority requirements for decisions. © 1975, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
