Today, Bloomberg Law published an opinion piece co-authored by CCL President Robert S. Peck on revitalizing the use of jury trials as a means to regain confidence in the courts. 

     The article, Fixing the Public's Confidence in the Courts Starts with Juries, recognizes the continued downward slide of public confidence in the courts, as well as the silver lining that respect for juries remains high. It further notes that jury trials in civil cases have become exceedingly rare and must be restored if the courts are to maintain the public's respect. 

      The article was co-authored with law professors Richard Jolly of Southwestern Law School and Valerie Hans of Cornell Law School.
