|Title:||The Politics of Jury Trials in Nineteenth-Century Ireland||Authors:||Howlin, Niamh||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/7712||Date:||2015||Online since:||2017-05-01T01:00:11Z||Abstract:||This article considers aspects of lay participation in the Irish justice system, focusing on some political dimensions of the trial jury in the nineteenth century. It then identifies some broad themes common to systems of lay participation generally, and particularly nineteenth-century European systems. These include perceptions of legitimacy, State involvement and interference with jury trials, and issues around representativeness. The traditional lack of scholarship in the area of comparative criminal justice history has meant that many of the commonalities between different jury systems have been hitherto unexplored. It is hoped that this paper will contribute to a wider discussion of the various commonalities and differences in the development of lay participation in justice systems.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis||Journal:||Comparative Legal History||Volume:||3||Issue:||2||Start page:||272||End page:||292||Keywords:||Legal history; Law; Jury; Law and politics||DOI:||10.1080/2049677X.2015.1110978||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
