Is there any way of increasing the chances of being chosen ?
(Yes, I need a break from work :) )

Thanks

hey forget jury service if you want a break from work you could put yourself in the dock and see it from the other side........depending on the crime you could have a great time inside..free board and food, free tv free games machines, free gym membership and free nookie if you like that sort of thing...now what more could you want....LOLOL

No. If you get picked, you get picked.

Not that I know of............it's just random.

I got called up for the week leading up to xmas a couple of years ago,and as they close for the xmas holidays,only had to be there for 1 week.Got chosen for the 1st case of the day,lasted 2 days(all the small cases are handled that week.apparently) didn't need to go again!

That wouldn't suit you though,you'll be wanting one of those cases that last months!:whistling:

Start your own crime spree and leave clues leading to other people. More crime means more court cases and hence increases your chances of being selected!!!. Remember to ensure that your crimes are serious enough to be dealt with by a Jury and not a Magistrate. If you happen to get caught you will get a break from work anyway!!. This plan can't fail !!....good luck :whistling:

I did it once ... wouldn't wish it upon anyone ....

People don't like to take responsibilty of their choices when on a jury thats why when you hear the jury's been out for 5 days + you know why.

Also a lot of waiting round.... be warned if you are chosen

Wear what you like and here is a linky to allowances jury service
#15
most people did dress smartly, very smart in fact, i felt like i had gone to a fashion show............ dress smart and you will be ok........... as for your expenses, claim for them, but if i remember rightly, it took a while for them to be processed........... i parked my car quite near to and got the bus the rest of the way, saved me forking out on car park fees

oh ok, because to get to the court the quickest way is to take the underground then the bus do i retain the tickets for proof then. i wasn't sure because the underground ticket machine takes your ticket when you leave so is it possible to get a receipt?
