A Talk by Prof. Rieko Kage

6:30 pm Free Admission Please register at link

Over the last decade, jury systems have been introduced in Japan and also South Korea and Taiwan.  Traditionally, these states’ criminal trials have been dominated by professional judges. So what are the factors that lead to states allowing greater public input into their criminal proceedings?

This talk will examine, primarily, the Japanese, but also other Asian contexts, to explain both the timing and structure of these new jury systems.
