How to Make Money at Home: Get Paid to Be a Mock Juror
eJury is looking for mock jurors to help attorneys “pre-try” a case before it goes to trial in front of an actual jury. Since each case is tried to at least 50 people, mock jurors can give lots of feedback to attorneys.
Qualifications to be a mock juror
You must be a U.S. citizen who is at least 18 years old and can never have been committed of a felony or under indictment. You cannot be an employee of a law firm or practicing any type of law. If you would like more details, then click here to get more info and sign up.
What Does Someone Do as Mock Juror?
The typical eJury case works like this:
First, the attorney prepares the Case Submission which consists of facts from the perspectives of each party, the jury questions which would be used at trial, and personal questions for additional feedback.
Then, eJury converts the attorney’s Case Submission into an “html format” and posts it to a secure location on our website where only eJurors in the county of selection can access the case. From there, the eJurors in that county are then notified by e-mail that a new case has been posted.
The eJurors return to our website, log in, and begin reviewing the facts and answering the questions, each clicking a “Submit Verdict” button upon completion. Once the minimum number of verdicts have been rendered (usually 50), the case automatically concludes. If you would like to see the results, they will post a case summary later.
How Much Money Do You Make?
Depending on the length of the case, eJurors receive a payment (through Paypal) of $5-$10.
