The jury system, one of the oldest judicial systems in the world, is a democratic form of citizen's direct participation in judicial activities and a safeguard mechanism for the rights of the citizens. It is formed in Britain and with the expansion of colonial domination, the jury system developed rapidly in Australia. The paper compares the jury system of Australia and Chinese courts and points out the differences of the selection conditions, selection procedures, relative rights, value orientations and safeguard measures to provide some reference for the relative researchers.
