Thomas Gives Lecture on the Jury to Taiwanese Judges
On October 4, 2016, Professor Thomas met with judges from Taiwan in Chicago. Thomas lectured on the jury in the United States and discussed her book The Missing American Jury.
THE MISSING AMERICAN JURY
Criminal, civil, and grand juries have disappeared. The book explores why juries have declined in power from their robust English origins, how the federal government and the states have taken the jury’s authority and why the jury should be recognized as a co-equal, “branch” of government.
Suja A. Thomas is a professor of law at the University of Illinois. Her research on the jury has received extensive national attention. She practiced law for many years in New York City. Her experience includes participating in civil trials, criminal trials, and arbitrations.
