mock jury jobseJury is just one site of many that you can sign up with and get paid for mock jury jobs in mock trials. These trials are created and posted by attorneys who are looking to get feedback on how an actual trial may go over. Allowing mock jurors to submit their verdicts on potential cases gives attorneys an excellent understanding of how things might play out when their cases go to trial, and this feedback can have a major impact on how they ultimately handle the cases. You’re not going to get rich being a mock juror, but it can be a fun way to make some extra money here and there.

How much does eJury pay?

eJury will pay you somewhere between $5 and $10 for each mock trial you participate in. The payments are sent at the conclusion of each trial via Paypal.

Who can sign up?

This opportunity is available to all residents of the United States who are 18 or older. Unfortunately, they do not allow insurance adjusters or people working in the legal field to sign up. You also are not eligible to participate in mock trials if you are closely related to a lawyer or have been indicted or accused of a felony or misdemeanor. When you sign up, they do ask for your driver’s license number so they can verify your identity. I’ve checked into it and eJury does not appear to be a scam or fraudulent in any way, but if you are uncomfortable providing this information, it might be best not to sign up.

How does this work?

After you sign up, you may occasionally get email invitations to participate in mock trials. Upon participation, you will receive all the case details. You’ll be asked to read it thoroughly and answer several questions. At the end your mock jury job, you’ll have to submit your verdict. You will not get invitations to do these all the time, and the website makes it clear that if you live in a rural area, you’re much less likely to get invited to do trials than if you live in a larger city. I guess in many ways these mock juror things are kind of closely related to paid surveys since you are looking over information and providing honest feedback. However, answering these questions are extremely important and should probably taken much more seriously than if you were just telling a company what you thought of their commercial. The pay is also somewhat better as a mock juror seeing as how most paid surveys only pay a few bucks a piece, if that.

Personal Experience

I did act as a mock juror three or four years ago, but I cannot remember now which company I did it for. I was paid for my feedback and I definitely enjoyed the experience. I went ahead and signed up for eJury today even though I don’t know how often I’ll get invited to do mock trials since the area I live in could definitely be considered rural. If you have any experience with eJury or any other mock jury site, I encourage you to post below. There are lots of other sites where you can sign up to do this that I’m going to check into, so any feedback on being a mock juror in general is much appreciated.

“and the website makes it clear that if you live in a rural area, you’re much less likely to get invited to do trials than if you live in a larger city.” This makes me a little nervous, but I plan on signing up anyways. It sounds like it has a GREAT payout.

I live in a rural area and have been signed up for several years. I have yet to be contacted but I knew that going into it so it’s not that big of a deal.

That’s very true about living in a rural area. By rural area, I mean a non-metro area, not necessarily a farm. You could live in a small city that is surrounded by mostly rural areas and small towns and still not get any mock jury work. The reason for thatis that the types of legal cases where mock juries are used usually involve large law firms working on specific types of cases, usually high-profile criminal cases (think Casey Anthony)or civil cases where high money damages may be at stake. I’m not saying that is always the case, but small-town attorneys and less-populated areas don’t usually deal with the sort of cases that would prompt a law firm to higher a mock jury service.

Sorry, I do know how to spell. I meant “hire” not “higher”. There are some other errors, also.
