Abstract

The article presents a critical examination of the evolution of Japan's twin systems of lay participation in legal decision-making. It reviews the first year performance of the lay judge system, examining conviction rates, quasi-juror representative disparities, and the types of crimes adjudicated. It offers suggestions and recommendations to improve the performance of both quasi-jury and grand jury systems.
