No new jury trials will commence until further notice, as a precautionary measure in response to the COVID-19 situation. This is to avoid requiring large groups to gather together for the purposes of the jury empanelment process.

Notice of Selection and Eligibility Form

Anybody who has received a Notice of Selection for jury service must still complete the Eligibility Form and submit it via either the online Juror Portal (External link) or the paper form.

Summons

Juries Victoria is continuing to send out summonses as per usual, so that the jury empanelment process may return to normal as quickly as possible when safe to do so.

That said, we are monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 situation, and may need to defer or cancel some people’s jury service. If this occurs, we will contact all those affected prior to their summons date.
