Episode 12: Inclusive Juries (podcast)

Serving on a jury is an important civic duty, but you may be surprised to learn that people who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind or have low vision are unable to serve on juries in Victoria. In May 2023 the VLRC published a report, Inclusive Juries, with a set of recommendations for reform that would enable more people to serve using reasonable adjustments.
