The right to jury trial is widely perceived as a fundamental right. The late Lord Denning, one of the most famous British judges, considered him the "bulwark of rights" [2].Article 3 of the U.S. Constitution, for example, guarantees such a right to U.S. citizens. The same applies to section 80 of the Australian Constitution [3]. In the United Kingdom, the trial of a serious offence before a jury or a professional judge is a matter of choice by the accused person. With the exception of some countries such as South Africa, jury trial is an intangible right.
