    havnt done it but would love to, what was your case about?

    I would love to do it but still waiting lol

    yah, never been picked... makes you wonder lol

    Know lots of people who have!

    ive done it and it is one of the best things i have ever experienced. Very interesting and a good way of seeing the way that the judicial system works.

    My mum has and it made her ill x

    I have done it and it was a very traumatic time as it was a case of a bloke who made and distributed pictures of kids being made to do things kids shouldn't they were all catagory 5 the worst about 200 images. He was such a low life so sure of him self he sacked his legal team to defend him self. The best feeling in the world telling him he was Guilty (he got 12 years and will be on the sex offenders register for life)

    I've never been picked but have done work experience following around a criminal defense barrister for a week which was fascinating stuff, but don't think I'd have liked to be the one to decide if the defendant was guilty or not!

    The one time I got picked I couldn't do it, was about a week from my due date when I was pregnant

    I did it when i was 21 or 22 my case was about 6 months long, really good experience, but im exempt for life now :x

    that must have been really hard for you xx

    i guess because it was a long case he was made exempt from doing it again. most people can do it again but only after 2 years of last doing it.

    thanks for the tip lol

    I've done it but the case got adjourned to pick another set of jurors because the judge accidentally named someone before they appeared. It is interesting but there is a lot of waiting around stuck in one room.

    I did jury service last year, and hated every minute of it. was called lots of times during my first week, but was actually called to sit on the jury 3 times. I luckily new the police involved in all 3 separate cases so had step down every time. was then politley told i was no longer needed. Very long days if there's lots going on.
