A guaranteed right to trial by jury at state level?

Gray, Anthony (2009) A guaranteed right to trial by jury at state level? Australian Journal of Human Rights, 15 (1). pp. 97-125. ISSN 1323-238X


This article considers whether the Constitution does or should guarantee a right to trial by jury at State level, as it does in respect of federal offences. In so doing, State laws providing for majority verdicts and for trial by judge alone in many cases are considered, before considering the advantages and disadvantages of the use of juries in hearing contested criminal charges.
