Featuring Sara Forsdyke, Josiah Ober Collegiate Professor of Ancient History at the University of Michigan

Presented by the Department of History, sponsored by the Kinder Institute on Constitutional Democracy

This seminar will focus on the institutional design of the ancient Greek jury. I will show how two features of the ancient jury – its large size and its random selection from a representative cross-section of the citizens – aimed to achieve decisions that were both impartial and just in the eyes of the community as a whole.
