How Do Jurors Reach a Verdict?
Taylor, K. Phillip; And Others
Journal of Communication, v31 n2 p37-42 Spr 1981
Studies the use of process instructions which explain to the jury not only the law but also provide a step-by-step process for the jury to follow. Concludes that results, in terms of verdict, do not differ with the use of process or standard instructions, but that less time was needed to reach a verdict using the process instructions. (JMF)
