Discussing the jury in America with Albert Dzur and John Gastil

JoTempshua Miller of Morgan State University recently recorded a discussion he orchestrated via GoogleHangout with political scientist Albert Dzur and me (John Gastil).

The interview-like-thing runs about 23 minutes and gives you some insight into what Albert and I have been studying, vis a vis juries. Tune in for our thoughts on the decline of juries, the structure of American jurisprudence, and the civic role of the jury. My favorite part is where Albert shows I’ve strayed (usefully) away from Tocqueville’s conception of the jury.

The interview, edited by Josh, is available online at YouTube.
