Behind Closed Doors Podcast

Behind Closed Doors


Go behind closed doors of the American criminal legal system to explore its inner workings with the Fully Informed Jury Association.

This unique podcast focuses on the American jury system. We will discuss its history and purpose, how it interacts with and is affected by other parts of the criminal legal system, and how our critical right to trial by jury has been driven to the brink of extinction.



Episode Guide


Jury Nullification 101

We dive right into the podcast by focusing on the heart of FIJA's mission: ensuring that everyone is fully informed of their right, when serving on a jury, to judge the law as well as the facts. In this nearly hour-long episode, Robert and Kirsten get into quite a bit of detail, complete with real-world examples of jury nullification in action.
