Why A Trial By Jury?Empanelment & ServiceCourt AdministrationGovernment Plaza

Welcome New Jurors

You have been summoned to render an important service as a juror.  You have enjoyed the privileges of citizenship and the protection of your liberties and property by the government.  As a juror, you are part of the judicial system of our state and will serve as an officer of the Court along with the judges and lawyers.  Your service as a juror is as important as those of the judge.  You are obligated to perform this service honestly and conscientiously, without fear or favor.

The purpose of this information is to help you understand the procedure in the Circuit Court of Mobile County, Alabama, and to enable you better to do your part in administering justice.  In the case in which you sit as a juror, the judge will give you instructions as to the law applicable to that case.


We hope that your service as a trial juror will be both interesting and informative.  The Circuit Court Judges and their staffs will make every effort to make it a pleasant experience.
