Abstract

Whilst jury trials are widely considered a fairer way of deciding whether an accused person is guilty of a crime than a judge deciding on their own, numerous psychological phenomenons have been shown to affect juror behaviour and the decisions they make. As such, Jury Psychology can be described as the study of psychological factors that impact the behaviour, deliberations, and decisions of jurors during trial.
