Instructions for Jurors

Before the trial begins, the judge will give instructions about duties as a juror, including information like:

  • What happens during a trial
  • When and for how long jurors need to be in the courtroom

You do not need to know anything about the law to serve on a jury. The judge will explain legal terms and the law that you, as a juror, will consider on the matter, as well as other things you will need to know.
