Answer by  tamarawilhite (17883)

The pros is that law must be followed, resulting in known rules to be followed and prevents law depending on whims of the powerful. The con - time involved.


Answer by  Julie34 (173)

On the pro side,the accused enjoys all Constitutional protections of the law and the entire process is fair and balanced. On the con side the only thing I can think of is the time that it takes and the hardship on the victims and their families in having to be at every hearing.Sometimes the victims are maligned and ignored.

When you hear pros and cons of due process, they are not talking about food or stem cell research. What is being referred to is the legal system, as cold as it may seem. To be bluntly honest, there are no cons when it comes to the legal system, but the main pro is justice and fairness.
