This paper studies the level of specific and general support for mixed tribunals, a form of lay participation in the government. The analyses focus on the opinions provided by 229 Croatian lay judges and eighty professional judges – the insiders in mixed tribunals. The results indicate that the judge's lay or professional role in the criminal justice system and the type of court exhibit stronger influence on the general level of support than any of the variables measuring specific support. Nevertheless, the perceived frequency of lay judges’ comments, the most direct measure of members’ crucial activity during trials and deliberations among the specific variables included in the models, is significantly related to the respondents’ general opinions about mixed tribunals.
