Abstract

This paper overviews Chief Justice Spigelman's suggestion that NSW criminal jurors consult sentencing judges and give views on sentence before those judges pass sentence. This form of lay participation in criminal justice is compared and contrasted to the new Japanese mixed court system (the saiban-in seido, operational by May 2009).

Keywords: Jury reform, criminal trials, NSW, Japan, Spigelman, saiban-in seido
