In the United States, the number of jury trials has been decreasing. The American Bar Association Commission on the American Jury is conducting a survey of judges, lawyers, court staff, and other participants in the legal system to collect data on the causes for this nationwide decline in jury trials. They will analyze this data to determine the issues and inform potential policy initiatives.
The Commission invites legal professionals to contribute their opinions and prospective by taking their survey from now until June 1, 2018. They anticipate publishing their results in late 2018.
The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. It does not request personally identifying information and the data will be analyzed and reported in the aggregate.
