The Cardassian Articles of Jurisprudence were laws governing treatment and rights of prisoners in the Cardassian justice system.

These articles included such cautions as:

"You have the right to refuse to answer questions, but such refusal may be construed as a sign of guilt."

It also provided for spouses of the accused to disassociate themselves from the accused by testifying against them. Cardassian trials were for show, as the verdict and sentence had already been determined in advance. There was no appeals process. (DS9: "Tribunal")
