"I consider trial by jury as the only anchor ever yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution."
                    - Thomas Jefferson

Jury service is an important civic and community duty. Through service on a jury citizens have a direct hand in the administration of justice. Jury service is a privilege and a responsibility that should be accepted with pride. The justice system cannot work fairly unless jurors perform their duties properly.

Please report to the courthouse on time. Report to Room 406A of the Shawnee County Courthouse. Room 406A is located on the fourth floor in the east wing of the building. The Jury Coordinator will be awaiting your arrival to greet you and check you in for service. If you have any special needs (i.e. medication, physical limitations) please inform the Jury Coordinator in advance or when you report so any accommodations can be made. There may be some waiting involved as other jurors are being processed and the panel selection begins, so please feel free to bring reading materials to make yourself more comfortable. You will watch a short video that will give you a brief introduction to the jury process. After all jurors have been assigned to cases, you will be instructed to proceed to your assigned courtrooms, where you will be greeted by the presiding judge and the court staff. The general hours court is in session are from 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday. However, you will be instructed by the court staff what time you will need to report. Jury trials on average last 1-3 days so please plan accordingly.
