Translated title of the contribution: Integrating lay judges in judicial tribunals: a systematic scoping review

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Many countries around the world have adopted various judicial models for integrating citizens into judicial tribunals, and this has become more widespread in recent decades. As “lay judges”, these citizens contribute their common sense, their sense of natural justice, and sometimes their professional knowledge to the legal process and to the specific court they are integrated into. There has been a lively debate about lay judges’ contribution to the legal process in Israel and around the world over the years. Our current study aimed to add another aspect to this discourse by using a Systematic Scoping Review (SSR) methodology to identify 57 empirical and theoretical studies on lay judges’ integration.As a result of these studies, we sought to understand the position and role of lay judges within judicial tribunals, as well as the challenges underlying their integration. We examine the scope of the phenomenon and the main contributions of lay judges’ integration, both on a general social and legal level as well as on a particular and systemic level.
