Started jury service today, for the second time:-( . For one of the other jurors its there 6th time!. I've heard of peeps being called 2/3 times, and the lucky few who never get the calling but, 6 times is ridiculous.
As someone who was on the original project to computerise jury summoning for England & Wales in 2000 or thereabouts, I know how the system works; if it is any consolation selection is purely random which is why some of you never seem to receive a summons and others recieve numerous ones. The system should prevent a summons being raised less than 2 years since the previous one unless you move house in the meantime.
Assuming you are live in England or Wales (and I guess you do judging by your moniker - in which case you may be at the football right now) you can serve as a juror up to the age 70, but have the automatic right of excusal after age 65.
I've served once (am 39). I would love to get called up again. Spent loads of time sitting in the jury waiting room reading books (I love reading), and only about two hours in jury work proper. Some days i didn't even have to turn up.
