Jury Test is a website you can join up with to occasionally get invites to participate in mock trial cases. Some people apply and never hear back, while others do hear back and occasionally receive invitations to participate in mock jury trials. I wrote up a review of eJury not too long ago, so I figured I would list some details about Jury Test as well since they are a similar company.
How much does it pay?
Jury Test will pay you between $20 and $50 for your participation in their mock trials. The exact amount depends on how complicated and involved the case is. They pay with either check or Paypal, your choice, and you can expect the cash between two and seven business days after the mock trial is over.
Who can sign up?
The website doesn’t list any specific details regarding who can participate, but when you sign up, you’re asked what county you live in and there is no option there to list your country of residence, so I’m thinking this is a U.S. only opportunity.
How do the trials work?
You’ll have to listen to/read about a case and then provide your honest opinion. Doing this should usually take no more than 20 minutes to one hour of your time. Giving your opinion on a case may involve recording your voice, participating in a live chat, or filling out a survey depending on what the attorney who requested the mock case wants. You’ll have to download RealPlayer to listen to cases, but this is a free download. Don’t go download it after you register — just wait to see if you’re ever asked to participate in a case.
How are you notified?
If you’re needed for a mock trial, Jury Test will send you an email. Registering does not guarantee they will ever contact you. From what I understand, getting invited into these mock trial cases is often much more likely when you live in a larger-sized city. People who live in rural areas for some reason do not get contacted as often — if ever.
What do people say?
Not a lot of feedback out there on this one. I have read a few posts on forums where people said they received mock trial invitations from Jury Test and were paid. A few other people said they applied and were never contacted at all.
