“The jury system has come to stand for all we mean by English justice. The scrutiny of 12 honest jurors provides defendants and plaintiffs alike a safeguard from arbitrary perversion of the law.”
The word "Jury" is derived from Old French, dating back to the 15th Century. It means "oath" or "inquiry." At the conclusion of a trial, the jury renders a verdict, which comes from the Latin word vērum dictum, which means "true word."
