SUPERIOR COURT OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY SEEKS APPLICANTS FOR 23-MEMBER CIVIL GRAND JURY
Panel Examines County, City, and Joint-Powers Agencies; Interested Applicants Must Apply by November 9
The Court seeks civic-minded applicants for the 2024-25 Civil Grand Jury of Los Angeles County. The Civil Grand Jury examines the operations of various County government agencies within Los Angeles County. Civil grand jurors may invest weeks or months of time reviewing government institutions after attending detailed briefings and training sessions. No prior jury service experience, investigative skills, or training are required to serve. Applications are due by November 9, 2023.
Qualified applicants must be:
- U.S. citizens, 18 years of age or older;
- Able to read and speak English; and
- Los Angeles County residents for at least one year.
How to Apply:
To apply, simply complete the Court’s Grand Jury Application www.lacourt.org/forms/pdf/grandjuryappl.pdf. Once completed, email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org or send the completed form via U.S. mail to the following address:
- Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, Grand Jury Administration 222 S. Hill St., Suite 670, Los Angeles, CA 90012
After applicants are interviewed and qualified, 23 citizens will be randomly selected and trained to investigate county, city and joint-powers agencies during the one-year tenure of Civil Grand Jury service. At the end of its investigation, the Civil Grand Jury will issue recommendations in a final report.
Former civil grand jurors indicated in a survey that “serving the public’s interest” and “performing their civic duty” were their chief reasons for applying. They also described serving as “engaging” and “personally satisfying.”
Civil grand jurors typically work 30-40 hours per week, usually meeting daily at 222 S. Hill St. in downtown Los Angeles. In addition to their $60 in daily compensation, civil grand jurors also are reimbursed for mileage.
The Court’s Juror Services Division coordinates applications. If applicants and nominees become finalists, they are eligible for the Civil Grand Jury. In the spring of 2024, 23 individuals from the finalist group will be randomly selected to serve on the 2024-25 Civil Grand Jury.
