Jurors in the Dock

People on juries have gone to prison for looking up defendants on the internet. But should we have more faith in jurors' ability to ignore information from outside court? Or are tough penalties what's needed to stop the integrity of our justice system being compromised? The Attorney General, Dominic Grieve, will be in the Law In Action studio to explain the government's new laws on contempt of court.

Also on the programme, presenter Joshua Rozenberg hears claims of a murder attempt and lives in turmoil as he speaks to people who turn up at the High Court without legal representation.

And could Tony Blair be subject to a citizen's arrest?
