Trial by jury is a cornerstone of our democracy. The Oregon and United States Constitutions protect our right to jury trial. Jury service is one of the most important rights and responsibilities of American citizenship. These pages include a video orientation and handbook with useful information about Oregon’s jury system and jury service for jurors, employers, and the public.
Some circuit court websites have additional information for jurors in their courts, including court etiquette and juror instructions. If a state court has summoned you to serve as a juror and you have questions, check the court's website below, read the summons carefully, and review these pages. If you have misplaced your summons or have questions that the websites and summons don't answer, please contact your local circuit court's jury coordinator.
