Abstract:     
Legal scholarship in the 21st century reflects a growing interest in behavioral research on law and legal institutions. In this Essay, we turn to behavioral research on the jury and use a unique set of real jury deliberations to raise serious questions about the trend toward dispensing with the unanimity requirement in civil jury trials.
