Being summonsed for jury service

If you are selected for jury service, you will be sent a document called a summons to juror.

You will also be sent another document called an acknowledgment of receipt of jury summons.

You must:

  • complete the acknowledgement of receipt
  • return it in the reply paid envelope provided.

You can be fined $500 if you fail to respond to a jury summons, or leave jury service without permission.

Panel allocation

You will be given a panel allocation number, found on the right hand corner of the summons to juror document.  

You are allocated to either a panel A or panel B during the time you are required to be available for jury service.

You will also be sent a jury service information package and booklet with the contact details for your panel.
