Term of Service

Your term of jury service will run approximately:

  • Peoria:  One (1) month   
  • Urbana:  One (1) month
  • Springfield:  One (1) month
  • Rock Island:  Two (2) months

Commencing on the date you first start calling, and will conclude when you are discharged.  Although you are on call, you will only be required to report for jury selection no more than a few times during your term of service.  The number of times will vary depending on the needs of the Court.  The jurors instructed to report are rotated within the panel to help minimize appearance dates.  If you are selected for a trial that continues beyond the service period, you will be required to serve until the completion of the trial.
