And to have a jury, citizens from all walks of life must be called upon to participate. Because you have received a jury summons, you are now part of this important process.

In a sense, it is an adventure. You have the opportunity to see the justice system in action, meet a wide range of people, and if you are chosen to serve on a jury, participate in one of this country’s most fundamental processes.

Although your jury summons may disrupt your daily routine, we ask that you participate with an open mind, patience and an understanding of the essential role you have in our justice system.
