How Long Is Jury Duty?

There is no way to predict how long jury duty may last. In some cases, being called for jury duty doesn't involve getting picked to sit on a jury, and the process is over within a few hours.

However, if a person is picked to sit on a jury, she could spend weeks or even months performing jury duty. This is especially relevant in complex cases such as murder trials or lengthy lawsuits. If a person is selected to serve on a grand jury, her service could run for a specific amount of time, and she could hear numerous cases while serving.
