Juror Orientationjurors in a courtroom

Trial by jury is a cornerstone of our democracy. The Oregon and United States Constitutions protect our right to trial by jury. Jury service is one of the most important rights and responsibilities of American citizenship. We conduct a short juror orientation to provide detailed instruction on your duties and the juror orientation videos are watched. Summoned jurors will report to the courthouse on the day and time specified on the jury recording for juror orientation.

Jury Response

If you have received a jury summons, please complete the questionnaire. The questionnaire will assist attorneys in Court and will save valuable time.
