What Should I Know About Serving on a Jury?

If called for jury service, what are the consequences if you don’t show up? If you report to jury service in May, when can you be called again?

These and many other questions are answered in the California State Bar’s newest pamphlet, What Should I Know About Serving on a Jury? Released on Law Day (May 1) to coincide with the American Bar Association’s focus on jury service, the new pamphlet is the 21st in the State Bar series called Get the Legal Facts of Life.

Non-profits (courts, legal services agencies, etc.) may obtain free copies simply by making the request on their court or agency letterhead. Those orders should be sent to Office of Media & Information Services, State Bar of California, Attn: Jury Service Pamphlet, 180 Howard St., San Francisco, CA 94105-1639.

Individuals may obtain a free copy by sending a self-addressed, stamped business envelope to the address above. All 21 pamphlets are available for bulk purchase; additional information and how to order is available at > Public Services > Consumer Information > Pamphlets.
