World Jury Systems

Oxford University Press

Despite broad public support, the civil jury in Canada exists in some jurisdictions in little more than name only, while it has been abolished in a few jurisdictions. Civil juries appear to be used more in Ontario compared to other provinces. This chapter explains why Canadian civil juries exist only at the margins by examining the availability of civil juries, empirical evidence regarding their use and cost in Ontario, and academic and policy debates concerning their role.
