What is the role of a judge in a jury trial? The judge listens to both sides of the case to make a recommendation to the jury of what outcome to decide. The judge makes sure the evidence is presented fairly and that the jurors understand the law and procedures. The judge chooses who will serve on the jury and will consider the recommendation of the jury in a bench trial. The judge selects what evidence may be shown at trial and what evidence will be reserved for the appeals court.

    A. The Judge 1. Generally, the judge rules on all matters of law. Although judges are the ultimate arbiters of the law, their role also includes the resolution of factual issues under a number of circumstances. 2. Preliminary Questions of Fact Determined by a Judge: Judges resolve a wide range of preliminary questions of fact, such as whether particular matters are privileged, whether a witness is competent to testify, whether a witness can offer expert testimony, and whether a confession was made voluntarily. 3. Judge Trials: At a judge trial (‘bench trial’) the judge is the sole finder of fact. At a jury trial, the jury typically renders the verdict. However, in limited circumstances, a trial judge may remove one or more questions from the jury and resolve them herself. 4. Judge’s Role in Commenting on Evidence at the Conclusion of a Jury Trial. a. In federal courts, the judge is permitted to comment on the weight of the evidence and may also summarize or “marshals” the evidence. b. In the majority of state courts, the judge may summarize evidence but is not permitted to comment on its weight. hope this helped
