For jurors

Juror appreciation

juror appreciation program logoThe month of September has been designated by the Wisconsin Court System as a time to recognize the importance of jurors to the American justice system. Co-sponsored by the Wisconsin Court System and the State Bar of Wisconsin, the judges, clerks and attorneys who work in the system year-round have created this opportunity to acknowledge the participation of the almost 200,000 individuals who are summoned to serve in Wisconsin each year - people who have set aside their work and personal lives to ensure that this cornerstone of American justice perseveres. Whether a juror serves in September or on another date, this is the legal system's chance to call attention to every prospective and sworn juror’s contribution and to say "thank you."
