Regarding Jury Service

Jury service consists of one full year from January 1st through December 31st. If you receive a jury questionnaire, please complete the questionnaire and return it to the Jefferson Circuit Court either by mail or personal delivery. At any time during the year of service, you may be asked to report for jury duty. 

Upon receipt of a jury summons, it will indicate the date and time you must appear. The length of time for jury service will depend upon the trial for which you are summoned to appear. If you appear as ordered, you will not be summoned to appear again within the calendar year.
