Judge without Jury

Diplock Trials in the Adversary System

John Jackson and Sean Doran

A Clarendon Press Publication

Oxford Monographs on Criminal Law and Justice

What would become of the criminal trial if the jury was taken out of the picture? This is precisely what occurred in Northern Ireland in 1973, after a Commission (chaired by Lord Diplock) recommended that cases connected with the "troubles" be tried by a judge alone. The authors' study of both Diplock and jury trials in Northern Ireland yields broad lessons for all those interested in the administration of criminal justice.
