Jury Nullification: The Evolution of a Doctrine, by Clay Conrad, is one of the major book-length treatments of jury nullification.[1] The Federal Lawyer noted, "Conrad provides...a comprehensive overview of jury nullification in historical, substantive, policy, and practical terms."[2] The book surveys the history of jury nullification, describing how it has changed with cases such as Sparf v. United States and with the advent of death-qualified juries. It ends with a chapter of advice for those pursuing a nullification-based defense.[3]
