In the last episode, we explored what if Indian courts used Artificial Intelligence or AI. This episode, we flip this, and ask - What if we got more people into our courts, and got jury trials back? Can it work, or is it a bad idea? Rohin Bhatt, a human rights lawyer and bioethicist, helps us through this thought experiment.
We cover two things: A bit of history to see what jury trials looked like in India in the past. And then, we find out why jury trials may, or may not, work in India.
