We present here this fascinating lecture from Prof. Alberto Binder, one of the most influential civil law scholars from our time. His vision and words during this famous conference "Criticizing Judges, Defending Juries",, held in Mendoza province, Argentina, 2005, were extremely important to achieve the goal of establishing jury trials in Argentina, an institution that is blossoming in this country during the last four years.

We added English subtitles to allow our colleagues and law students from around the world to be able to understand this lecture and its invaluable significance. This is a unique glimpse of the jury from the perspective of a top continental scholar.

Prof. Alberto Binder addresses during this conference many of the topics that have been used since the 18th century in the civil law countries to criticize the jury, such as the general verdict´s alleged lack of reasoning.

He rebutts this fallacy focusing on the "issue of control", rather than the "problem" of "reasoned verdicts". 

He also addresses the following issues:
- A strong critique on bench judges.
- The way the jury helps to improve a real adversarial litigation.
- A new understanding of the appeal.
- Comparing jury verdicts and judgments (with no reasoning at all) in the civil law.
