Jury Service – Orientation

The purpose of the Orientation is to inform those summoned of the process of jury service and to qualify them as jurors.

Three times a year the Circuit Clerk and Judges conduct Jury Orientation held in the large courtroom of the main Courthouse. The main Courthouse address is 102 NE A Street, Bentonville, AR 72712. The main courtroom is room 305 on the third floor.

The Circuit Clerk and Judges will discuss the various aspects of jury service. Qualified jurors will then be sworn in to serve their term of service.

Terms of Service for each year are as follows:

  • Jan. 1st – April 30th
  • May 1st – Aug. 31st
  • Sept. 1st – Dec. 31st

If you have been summoned to Jury Orientation, you will need to make sure to bring the Jury Summons (Questionnaire) with you.

You will need to have it filled out on both sides and signed in black ink.

Please give this to one of the Deputy Circuit Clerks greeting you at the doors.
