JANSEN, Corjo. The participation of laymen in the Dutch judiciary 1811-2011. Fundamina (Pretoria) [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.1, pp.427-436. ISSN 2411-7870.
This article describes the participation of laymen in Dutch justice from 1 March 1811 until 2011. History shows that discussion about the participation of laymen in the administration of justice has always related to the level of public trust in the judiciary and state-appointed judges at a certain time. Based on this, three peaks can be discerned in the focus on the administration ofjustice by laymen: the first decades of the nineteenth century, the first decades of the twentieth century and the first decade of the twenty-first century.
