Why have juries?
- Group recall > individual recall
- Forced deliberation requires in-depth thinking
- -----the use of central route (systematic) processing is increased
- Representativeness (diversity) of perspectives
- Attention focused on all of the evidence rather than selective pieces
- Restrains use of inadmissable evidence
- When the evidence is unambiguous and can be understood, most juries render verdicts consistent with it
