What to expect on Jury Service

Jury service

Have you ever been selected for Jury service – if not I imagine you know someone who has? Perhaps you have always wanted to be  part of the process or simply have no interest and would hate it.

Who can be called

If you are on the Electorial Register and between 18 and 75 you have a chance of being called. The new age of 75 was recently introduced for England and Wales  There are exceptions of who can and cannot be a Juror and this will be detailed on your letter.  Please note my experience is based on England court systems.

I have been called twice and while I cannot mention any details I will expand generally on what to expect.

The process begins with a letter (known as the Jury Summons) delivered to your home (by normal post).  It will give you a date and time to report for Jury service – generally is it around 4-6 weeks away from the date of the letter. This should give you time to arrange childcare cover, time off work etc.
