Jury service is one of the highest duties of citizenship. Your service will give
you an opportunity to learn about Gwinnett County's court system and allow you to
see the county's trial courts operate. While it may require some adjustment of your
normal schedule and routine to serve as a juror, the judges hope that any inconvenience
will be minimal and they thank you in advance for your sacrifice and effort.
You are required to report promptly to the Jury Assembly Room on the 1st level of
the Nash Court Building on the date and at the time obtained
from either the E-Juror System at www.gwinnettcourts.com/ejuror or the Juror
IVR System (770-822-7170). In order to access either system you will need your juror
number and date of birth. There may be unavoidable periods of delay in the selection
of juries. We suggest that you bring reading material or work with you. Please note
that newspapers are not permitted.
Your Jury Service duty is normally one (1) week. However, if you are
participating in a trial and the trial is not completed in the week for which you
were summoned, you will be required to report to the courthouse until the trial
is completed. Please plan accordingly.
Your Grand Jury Service duty is for a six month term. However, your
actual reporting dates vary according to the requirements of the Gwinnett County
District Attorney’s Office. More detailed information will be given to you on the
day of reporting.
Please use good judgment and report to jury duty properly dressed.
There is a cafeteria available in the GJAC building. The cafeteria is currently cashless, please bring a debit or credit card with you to purchase items.
Computers, cellular phones, and pagers may be used in the Jury Assembly room. Radios
are not permitted.
Do not bring children to the assembly room or when reporting for jury service. Child
care services are not available.
You will receive a juror payment each day that you report to the Gwinnett County Courthouse. Paper checks are mailed by the Gwinnett County Finance Department within two to three weeks following your jury service. We now offer the option of electronic Zelle payments. If enrolled in Zelle, the payment from Gwinnett County Finance Department will be deposited into your bank account within minutes. Zelle payments require the recipient to be enrolled with Zelle for funds to deposit into their checking or savings account. If not enrolled in Zelle, you will be prompted to do so via email/text. If you do not enroll within 14 days, Gwinnett County will initiate a paper check disbursement, which will be mailed to the address listed on your juror summons.
