Jury Service Revisited: Upgrades for the 21st Century
Jury Service Revisited: Upgrades for the 21st Century

For the past 12 months, a Committee of the Council for Court Excellence (CCE or The Council) has undertaken to re-examine the jury system in the District of Columbia, as a follow up to CCE’s initial study of jury service in 1998. We have been pleased to co-chair this recent effort, and we are delighted to share the results in this report: Jury Service Revisited: Upgrades for the 21st Century. Building on the seminal CCE study, our devoted Committee—comprised of judges, court officials, trial attorneys, bar leaders, policy experts, and former jurors—spent many hours researching various aspects of jury service in the District, debating potential proposals, and drafting the recommendations that appear in this report, which we hope will be useful both to the officials in our community who bear the responsibility of administering this critical institution and to the citizens who devote their time and attention to the important work of serving as jurors.
