Andrew Ferguson, an assistant professor at the David A. Clarke School of Law at the University of District Columbia, has written a new book entitled Why Jury Duty Matters: A Citizen's Guide to Constitutional Action. Unlike many books written on the jury, this one is directed to the actual juror or prospective juror. According to the author, the book is written to help explain to jurors their role in the constitutional process. In a way this book serves as a pep talk to those selected to serve as jurors. The book examines the broader implications of jury service beyond just finding someone guilty or not guilty. To watch a video of the author discussing his book go here.
