After the trial


When you have finished serving on a jury panel, you are exempt from further jury service for a period of three years.

Most jurors are relieved to return to their workplace or home after their time on the jury but for a small number of jurors, this may be more challenging. There may be various reasons why jurors feel confused or upset after a criminal trial.


Juror Support Program

After the trial, a court officer or sheriff's officer will give you information about the Juror Support Program.

If you need support or require further information about this program please contact the Jury Information Line on 1300 722 574.
