ABA AMERICAN JURY INITIATIVE
The Jury Trial Project coincided with the ongoing American Bar Association's (ABA) American Jury Initiative. That initiative included an effort to produce a single set of modern jury principles based on best practices from around the country. The principles were voted on by the ABA House of Delegates during the ABA Midyear Meeting in February. In addition, a 21-member Commission on the American Jury, cochaired by New York Chief Judge Judith S. Kaye, is charged with outreach to the public, the legal profession and the courts and worked closely with courts and bar groups around the country to highlight the jury and juror appreciation as the focal point of this year's Law Day celebrations.
