Murray, Karen (2012) An Internet Enabled Jury of One's Peers. Bar Review, 17 (2). pp. 32-35. ISSN 1339-3426Full text not available from this repository.
This article considers if use of the internet by jurors to communicate with defendants in, or access information about, cases they are trying poses a challenge to the concept of trial by jury and the administration of justice, or whether a juror's disregard for the principle that a verdict can only be based on the evidence given in court is more problematic. Examines three cases where a juror's use, or potential use, of the internet was considered a danger to the trial. Notes the requirements for a trial by jury in Ireland, and the need for judges to consider the nature of the warnings they issue to jurors.
