‘Juries and Social Media’ – our report commissioned by the Victorian Attorney-General – has just been published by the Standing Council on Law and Justice. You can view it as a PDF here.
The report stems from the work of our collaborative research group of six researchers from five universities, led by Professor Patrick Keyzer from Bond University’s Centre for Law, Governance and Public Policy.
Other researchers are Jane Johnston from Bond, Sharon Rodrick from Monash U, Anne Wallace from Edith Cowan U, Geoff Holland from UTS and me (Mark Pearson from Griffith University).
We were commissioned by the Victorian Attorney-General to research and write this briefing paper for the Standing Council on Law and Justice (the former Standing Committee of Attorneys-General) on the impact of social media on juries.
We have also been running a series of seminars throughout the nation for judges, magistrates, lawyers and prosecutors.
