Several times throughout the year, we have a need for people like you to serve as mock jurors. Whether it's during a studio class or just one visiting attorney, the need to practice in front of a jury is CRITICAL to the lawyer's development and mastery in the courtroom. If you are local to the greater Portland-Metropolitan area, you can play a vital role in their growth.
Additionally, several times each month we host virtual mock juries for attorneys across the nation. We'd love for you to plug into that critical learning opportunity as well.
For live mock juries, we provide an $80 stipend, free parking, and generous snack and beverage service. Due to personal health consideration, regardless of state mandates, in-person jurors will need to provide proof of full vaccination protocol and will be required to wear face coverings for the duration. Hand sanitizing stations and social distancing will be available.
Virtual mock juries require reliable internet, webcam, and microphone (often standard in the computer itself). We provide a $60 stipend for virtual jurors. In an effort to create a broad cross-section of the population for our attorneys, we ask that you fill out the following application to be considered for participation. Applying does not guarantee you'll be chosen, and we ask that you select all potential dates you are available to participate. Please note we cannot assure that couples or friend groups will be selected for the same mock jury session. If selected, you will be notified by email (with transportation, parking and entry information), invited to a specific session, and a request for confirmation.
Cancellations or no-shows will jeopardize future participation, so please only apply if you are confident you're able to attend the assigned session. If you have questions, please call our office at (503)880-2958.
