The Seventh Amendment right to trial by jury is fundamental to our system of self-government. It is the jury's job to examine the evidence, find the finds, and render a just verdict. When you serve on a jury, you are honoring a sacred duty to your fellow citizens, enforcing the rules and resolving disputes peacefully. This video series examines the origin and importance of the Seventh Amendment. It is made possible by the support of the ABOTA Foundation, the Wyatt Family Foundation, and viewers like you.
