Fair and Just Deliberations is a simple and effective process for jurors that yields a more balanced and comprehensive view of any issue.
When the jury convenes in the jury room, the Fair and Just Deliberations Guide and reference video will be shown initially. When the jury chooses to use the deliberation method, the available individual pocket guides are distributed to all, including the designated presiding juror. The presiding juror also receives a check list of recommendations on setting up and administering this process. A flip chart or marker board is present to record, for all to see throughout the deliberation, key commentary for reference. An example would be individual trial notes.*
*In a trial where note-taking is allowed a template form will be supplied.
