In early July, the Beijing branch team of the "In the Name of People" Summer Practice Team began summer practice in the streets of Beijing.
The People’s Court of Xicheng District
Under the scorching sun, we first came to the People's Court of Xicheng District, Beijing. We contacted the judge in advance and interviewed the judge. The judge put forward his own views on the people's jury system from the perspective of judicial practice, let us realize that our original research The vulnerability is there. Subsequently, in the remaining practice, we interviewed the parties in the court and issued a carefully crafted questionnaire.
The People’s Court of Haidian District
Later, we went to the Haidian District People's Court in Beijing to find the parties and staff to conduct interviews and issue questionnaires. During the investigation, we also met the 06th sister who graduated from the Beijing Normal University Law School. We filled out the questionnaire.
In the process of practice, we continue to find the problems in the questionnaire. Every time we go out to interview and issue the questionnaire, we will improve the problems in the questionnaire, so that the questionnaire is more and more refined.
In the process of issuing questionnaires in Beijing Normal University, we also met a teacher from Beijing Normal University. After carefully filling out the questionnaire, the teacher also pointed out some problems in the design of the questionnaire. We pointed out the teacher on the same day. The problem has been corrected
Of course, in order to investigate the diversity of the research objects, the location of our research is not limited to the judiciary. We also go to parks, shopping malls and other places to issue questionnaires. In the process of conducting research in these locations, we have benefited a lot, and we have learned more about the simple impression of the people's jury system in the hearts of ordinary people, and inspired us to consider the system of people's jurors, not only from the perspective of a legal profession. It is also necessary to look at the role that the people’s jury system may play from the perspective of an ordinary person.
People's jury system knowledge
The people's jury system has a long history in China and can be traced back to the anti-Japanese war. After the founding of New China, the people's jury system experienced a tortuous development process in China. In 2005, the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress promulgated the "Decision on Perfecting the People's Juror System", marking the re-emphasis of the people's jury system; in 2015, the pilot reform of the people's jury system was conducted in 50 pilot courts across the country. In the process, some innovative and effective new systems and mechanisms have been retained. In April 2018, the People's Juror Law was promulgated, marking the beginning of a new era in the people's jury system in China.
