Abstract

As part of a larger project on the various roles that citizens of a democratic polity may be called on to play in relation to the criminal law, I discuss the way in which the criminal law should figure in the practical reasoning of a good citizen, and the distinctive role of juror.

Keywords: Legal reasoning, civic roles, citizens, jurors
