CCE's Jury Project is surveying employers to learn more about their policies regarding employees who have been summoned for jury service. This survey is intended for human resources representatives or others who administer those policies.
The Council for Court Excellence has been fully immersed this winter in its School Jury Education Program where judges, lawyers, and court administrators take part in educating local high school students about the importance of jury service and their role as prospective jurors.
