->''"In the criminal justice system, all defendants are innocent until proven guilty, either by confession, plea bargain, or trial by jury. This is one of those trials."''

''Law & Order: Trial by Jury'' (2005-2006) is a short-lived spinoff of the original ''Series/LawAndOrder.'' Whereas the other spinoffs focused more on the detectives, ''Trial by Jury'' focused on the [=ADAs=] and [[LawProcedural court proceedings]] of a criminal investigation. The show starred Creator/BebeNeuwirth as [=EADA=] Tracey Kibre, and Amy Carlson as her assistant Kelly Gaffney.

After it was canceled due to low ratings, the sets were reused for ''Series/{{Conviction}}'', another ''Law & Order'' spinoff focusing on the LawProcedural side (which was also canceled due to low ratings after a very short run).

Featured two appearances by Creator/JerryOrbach as Detective Lennie Briscoe -- his last episodes of primetime television before his death.

!!This show provides examples of:
* AmoralAttorney: Lampshaded.
-->'''Norman Rothenberg''': You're wasting your time in the DA's office. I could triple what you make.
-->'''Tracey Kibre''': You don't want me, Norman. I have scruples.
-->'''Norman Rothenberg''': They have pills for that!
* BerserkButton: Call Tracey Kibre a bitch, and she will smile politely and eviscerate you in court. Call her second chair Kelly Gaffney a bitch, and suddenly the phrase "died of fright" doesn't seem so farfetched.
* {{Determinator}}: Tracy Kibre.
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler: The initial suspect of "Boys Will Be Boys" after his father disowns him for being gay.]]
* GoodOlBoy: Arthur Branch.
* HelloAttorney: The leads are two attractive women.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Detective Chris Ravell, Briscoe's replacement.
* RequiredSpinoffCrossover: Twice. Once with the original series, and once with ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit''.
* SpecialGuest: Creator/CandiceBergen as [[strike:[[Series/BostonLegal Shirley Schmidt]]]] Judge Amanda Anderlee.
* {{Transplant}}: Lennie Briscoe and Jamie Ross, both from the original series. Arthur Branch to some degree as well, although he was still a regular on the original series whilst simultaneously being a regular on ''Trial By Jury'', and remained in the original series for several seasons after ''Trial By Jury'' was axed.
* WhatTheHellHero: Tracey Kibre puts Jack [=McCoy=] to shame at times.
** First for her actions by the presiding judge during the episode where the baby was killed (and he even vacates the jury verdict in her favor as she prejudiced the case). Her colleagues also do it at least a couple of times as well.
*** Kelly Gaffney also later called her out in "Boys Will Be Boys" for excusing Hispanic jurors because they might sympathize.
