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:

  1. Complete the acknowledgement of receipt. 
  2. 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.
