Length of Service
Jurors are typically summoned for a one-week session. Occasionally, jurors may be summoned for multi-week sessions when complex and / or lengthy matters are to be tried. Jurors can and often do serve on more than one trial. Jurors are obligated to the court for the entire week's session of court, until excused by the presiding judge.
When and Where to Report
Jurors should follow the instructions found on the back of the jury summons they receive. When they arrive at the courthouse, they will be checked in and given an orientation conducted by the jury clerk. This will be followed by a short video presentation designed to educate jurors on the trial process and their role as a juror.
