This paper contends that even jurors are just human and are prone to the same kinds of mistakes that all people make and that it is the responsibility of the courts and their officers to ensure that those who serve on juries possess the requisite qualifications to serve without prejudice. To determine what these qualifications are and how they are discerned during the jury selection process, this paper provides an overview of voir dire, case law and a discussion of how these play out in real-world settings today. A summary of the research and salient findings are provided in the conclusion.
