Our Legal Practicum course is searching for online volunteer jurors to participate in a jury trial via Zoom meeting on Tuesday, December 1, 2020.
The jury trial will begin between 8:00 and 8:30 a.m. and will end around 2:30 p.m. More details will be provided closer to the trial.
Jurors choosing to volunteer will participate online from home via Zoom. There will be a few breaks throughout the trial. Dress is casual.
Jurors must know how to join a Zoom meeting and must use a computer that has a camera so participants can see the jurors.
Jurors will be recruited on a first come, first served basis.
As we get closer to December, Jennifer Miller will email you a Zoom link so that you may view the trial and participate.
To thank you for being a volunteer juror, Jennifer will email you a $25 e-gift card after the trial has ended and you have deliberated on the verdict, announced the verdict, and offered constructive criticism to the participants.
