Reply to a Jury Summons

Use this service to reply to a letter (‘summons’) asking you to do jury service. You can:
  • confirm you can go
  • say why you are not available

You can reply for someone else if they give you permission.
 
You must reply within 7 days of getting the letter.
 
You will need your:
  • juror number - find this on your summons letter
  • name and address exactly as they are shown on the letter - you can correct any mistakes when you reply
 
You might get a fine of up to £1,000 if you do not reply to a jury summons or you lie to avoid jury service.
