Abstract

This paper considers allegations of racial bias on juries in England and Wales.It argues that despite allegations of juror misconduct, juries in England and Wales are not racially biased towards black and ethnic minority defendants. Allegations of racial bias are without boarders and this paper draws upon research conducted in several jurisdictions which examines the public's attitude toward jury service and the criminal justice system, while also proposing alternatives which could be utilised to avert the risk of racial bias having an adverse effect on criminal trials in the future.
