Seventh Amendment

In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury, shall be otherwise reexamined in any Court of the United States, than according to the rules of the common law.

The seventh amendment gives us the right to a jury trial in civil cases.
This video is very thorough in explaining the seventh amendment and it also has some good flow.
This high school student was able to demonstrate the rights the seventh amendment provides and he also added in some information on the twenty dollar clause.
