I have been on two juries. one for rape and one for domestic abuse where where neither party spoke English. That was interesting. In my younger days I had the displeasure of being before a judge myself and I can say without a doubt that no matter if your on the outside looking in, or on the inside looking out, it is a process unlike any other. It can be both unsettling and fascinating at once. You would be surprised how much is taken for granted and how much is negotiated . If your thinking TV court room drama, think again.
