In most instances the right to a jury trial either clearly does or does not exist. Yet there are some instances where this constitutional right is not clear. However, lawyers, pressed for time and more concerned with substantive issues, fail to argue the issue and thus it is rarely litigated. Those lawyers who are concerned with the jury trial question, for tactical reasons or otherwise, are hampered by a dearth of material providing adequate guides in this area. This article is designed to fill this void.
