Abstract: An institution called "jury" has a long history but because of its newness in Iranian law and lack of clarification for its jurisprudential bases, it has not found its real place. Selection of the jury by people, judges attention to its opinion, lack of judicial expertise and non-interference of its members are some of the conditions that must be met today with respect to the developments which have occurred to the nature of this institution. Adherence to these conditions in the Iranian law, can only be realized when we consider a place for the jury in the Islamic jurisprudence. Thus, this study explains the nature of the jury with regard to its origin as well as providing a criticism of national laws. It offers criteria to adapt this institution to Sharia and provides strategies to strengthen law making.
