  2. The advantages and the drawbacks to be judge by a 'judge'

In some states like France and Great Britain, the accused are judged by a jury. The case is presented before the "Cour d'Assises" in France and the Crown Court in Great Britain. A jury is composed of some citizens who must pronounce a verdict at the end of a trial. This mode of judgment often seems convenient for the persons accused; however it is not always the case. There are many questions surrounding the jury and whether they are justified in taking the decisions. To answer these questions, it is necessary to measure the elements for and against each mode of judgment.
