I-Juror is the software used to select Jurors for matters at the Will County Courthouse. Will County jurors are randomly selected from a number of sources including but not limited to voter registration records, driver's licenses and state issued ID cards. Once potential jurors complete a questionaire, they are placed into a pool whereby individuals are randomly selected (by computer) to show up for a given period of time to satisfy their jury service.
It is the goal of the 12th Judicial Circuit to select juries that reflect a cross-section of the County demographically, economically, racially and geographically.
