Typically, serving on a jury is considered compulsory if a particular citizen is chosen. However, depending upon the country or state in question there are certain exceptions and exclusions which will vary between jurisdictions.

Hence to check on your liability for not sowing up at jury duty you would need to check with your local court. There are various reasons why people feel they are unable to attend jury duty but it is an important responsibility which needs to be taken seriously. If you have any questions or if you wish to present your reasons for not attending you would need to get in touch with the court office.

The jury system is a popular method of distributing justice in a number of places however the validity of the same has been questioned. This is particularly true in high profile cases which lead to media frenzy and people prematurely pronouncing their verdicts.
