Tech Obsessed Youth Can’t Listen, Make Bad Jurors
The Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales is concerned about the younger generation’s attention spans. He’s noticed increasing levels of distraction amongst younger jurors who’ve passed though his courts. In a recent speech, he proposed the idea that court information should be provided for jurors on screens, as that’s how, more often than not, they take in information. It’s almost as if these people mentioned in the story are handicapped without having technological mediation. Or, you know – it could just be that jury duty can be really boring. Curious stuff indeed.
