Mission Statement

the Citizens Jury Project strives to promote systemic reforms that improve conditions for all jurors.

Description

The Citizens Jury Project was created in 1995, following a recommendation made by the Jury Project, a blue-ribbon panel formed by Chief Judge Judith Kaye designed to review and reform jury service in New York State. This panel, composed of judges, attorneys, and educators, called for the creation of an ombudservice to assist jurors with complaints, particularly about employers who violate New York law by penalizing their employees for missing work because of jury service. The Citizens Jury Project does this, and serves as an advocate for individual jurors on a variety of issues, from summonsing to dismissal. Through ongoing data collection and analysis, the Citizens Jury Project strives to promote systemic reforms that improve conditions for all jurors.
