Learn About Missouri's Juror Appreciation Week
Missouri’s 2014 Juror Appreciation Week is Monday, April 28 - Friday, May 2. During the week, judges, lawyers and court clerks will
emphasize to jurors how important their contributions are to the courts, their
communities and our judicial system. In 2013, more than 58,000 Missourians reported to jury duty in state courts.
Missouri is one of only a few states that hold a statewide Juror Appreciation Week, with more than 50 courts participating annually. The observance began in 2000 by order of the Supreme Court of Missouri. The order states, “Each year thousands of Missourians perform one of the most significant civic duties granted to citizens -- they serve as fair and impartial jurors in communities throughout the state. To honor those citizens who have performed their civic duty, all Missouri courts are directed to observe Juror Appreciation Week…” “We appreciate the thousands of Missourians
who serve their duty as a juror each year,” said Missouri Bar President Jack Brady. “Jury duty can be
inconvenient to our daily lives, but the right to a jury trial is fundamental
to upholding our constitution and democracy. We dedicate this week to
recognizing and thanking Missourians who do their part and report for jury duty.”
