Reconstructing Justice: An Agenda for Trial Reform

Synopsis

The United States is so ensconced in the adversary system of trial justice that it has escaped serious public scrutiny. Yet it is replete with substantive deficiencies and injustices. As few others have, this book discusses and illustrates the major problems endemic to the adversary system in a scholarly but provocative fashion. Particular attention is given to the limitations of juries and the corrupting role trial attorneys often have on factfinding and jury decision-making. The book's most salient contribution is a comprehensive and detailed scheme of proposed reforms. Many are adopted from foreign trial systems and domestic alternative dispute resolution mechanisms; others are based on a long overdue revamping of the jury system.
