Juries: A Hong Kong Perspective
Hong Kong University Press, 1992年5月1日 - 184 頁
This book is based on the findings of a research on the jury system in HK. The issues addressed include: the comprehension of HK jury, its representativeness, and the political significance of its existence (especially in the light of 1997). The research itself is unique in that judiciaries around the world tend to maintain a wall of secrecy around the operations of the jury. Suitable for law and criminology courses.
