Shortly after being admitting into the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), William Buus felt inspired to write about the value of jury trials in an article that was published by Los Angeles Lawyer magazine in February of 2013. The article explains why jury trials serve an important governmental function to act as a critical buffer between the government and the governed, and urges all people to view them differently. "Special interests have been knocking jury trials, which have been steadily decreasing in numbers over the years," Mr. Buus said. "We need to ensure that the civil jury trial, which is a vital Constitutional promise, does not disappear due to the prevalence of misinformation and misperceptions about our system of justice."
