Jury Duty Information

Welcome to Hamilton County Jury Service

Congratulations on being called for jury service! Your service is essential to the administration of justice, and your participation is greatly appreciated by the judges, attorneys and parties. The constitutional right to a jury trial is critical to our judicial system and jurors are a crucial part of the process. Serving as a juror is not only an obligation, but a right and a privilege. The jury selection process is a driver’s-license based system from the Department of Motor Vehicle Headquarters in Nashville, TN.

The Trial Judges and Circuit Court Clerk, Larry L. Henry, of the Eleventh Judicial District of Hamilton County welcome you to Jury Service. This website was created to provide useful information concerning Jury Duty in Hamilton County. We hope all of your questions are answered.
