In March 2013 the Commission was asked to review three aspects of jury empanelment for both criminal and civil trials:
- Whether jurors should be identified in court by name or number
- Peremptory challenges (and the Crown right to stand aside in criminal trials)
- The balloting off of additional jurors.
In particular, the terms of reference asked the Commission to consider the effect of these processes on jurors.
The Commission published a consultation paper in October 2013.
