Abstract:

This report recommends significant legislative reform of the law concerning jury directions in criminal trials. It also recommends procedural and administrative changes that would improve jury directions.Trial judges give juries directions in order to assist them reach fair and just verdicts. Our recommendations aim to improve this process. The recommendations also seek to reduce the possibility of error when judges give juries directions. This step would lead to a reduction in the number of retrials. In addition, we have recommended new procedures when the trial judge sums up a case for the jury which are designed to improve their understanding of the real issues they must decide in order to reach a verdict.
