Length of Service

Jury service in this county operates on the one-day / one-trial system. A new group of jurors are summoned each day of the week and, if selected to serve on a jury, a juror will serve for that day or for the length of a trial. However, if a person is not selected for a trial, their jury service will be complete after that one day. If selected to serve on a trial that is completed before the end of the day, those jurors will return to the jury assembly area and may then be selected for service on another case. If not selected again, those jurors will be released at the end of the day, having completed their jury service. Jurors selected for a trial that takes several days will need to be present each day during the trial.

When and Where to Report

After receiving a jury summons, please check the front of the summons to determine if you have been summoned for jury service at the Greensboro Courthouse (Jury Assembly Room on the third floor) or the High Point Courthouse (Jury Assembly Room on the fourth floor).

Please call (336) 641-6680 after 6:00 p.m. the evening before you are scheduled to appear. After entering your juror number, a recorded message will inform you if your appearance will be required. Occasionally, the court is able to release some or all jurors when the need for them& is less than anticipated.
