The right to a trial by jury is provided for in the United States and the Colorado Constitution.  Jury service is a privilege, a duty to one’s fellow citizens and an opportunity to participate directly in our democracy.

Your service to your community as a juror will be respected and appreciated by litigants, attorneys, judges, court staff and the citizens of Aurora. The judges and staff of the Aurora Municipal Court thank you for your juror service.

What Is A One Day / One Trial?

The city of Aurora uses the “one day / one trial” system, which means a person is either selected to serve as a juror or is released from jury service on the first day they are summoned for juror service.  When a juror is assigned to a trial, the length of juror service will be for that trial which is generally one (1) day.

When Are Jury Trials Scheduled?

Jury trials are conducted in Aurora Municipal Court on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Jurors who are scheduled for juror service are scheduled to report at 8:00 AM.  

How Was I Chosen For Jury Service?

The city of Aurora obtains prospective juror names from an outside vendor who uses many sources, representing a cross-section of the city of Aurora.  All jurors are randomly selected.

What Can I Do If I Have A Conflict For Jury Service?

If your prospective jury service date conflicts with an existing appointment, the Jury Commissioner will work with you to select a mutually agreeable date for jury service.  To exercise your right to request your juror service date be postponed, please email the Jury Commissioner at [email protected] or call 303.739.6466.
