Jury empanelment consultation paper preface

n October 2013, following preliminary research and consultation, the Commission produced a consultation paper on three aspects of the jury empanelment process:

  • peremptory challenges and the Crown right to stand aside
  • calling of the panel in court by name or number
  • the use of additional jurors.

The paper provided information about the jury empanelment process, how it operated, and issues identified with it. It asked a series of questions to guide further consultation and submissions.
