What is a sworn juror?

You have been summoned to serve as a trial juror in the Superior Court of California, Los Angeles County. Since our court first opened its doors in 1879, there has been a long tradition and belief in the importance of a strong judicial system. As a juror, you are now part of this long tradition. Such service is both a privilege and a duty and, when conscientiously performed, is a mark of good citizenship. Although jury service may cause you personal inconvenience or hardship, the opportunity to participate in our justice system should be a rewarding experience.

Upon selection, a juror becomes an integral part of the judicial system and has an important responsibility. The jury is assigned the duty of making decisions concerning questions of fact in the pending case. The trial judge rules upon questions of law. A fair and impartial trial and a just verdict depend upon the combined efforts of the jurors as deciders of the facts, the judge as presiding officer and final authority on the law, and the lawyers as advocates.
