Greetings from Chief Justice Gants

Picture of Chief Justice Gants  

Welcome, and thank you for visiting the Massachusetts Juror Service Website. The right to a trial by jury is one of the cornerstones of our participatory democracy. The Pilgrims brought the concept of the jury trial with them to Plymouth in 1620. Just over 350 years later, Massachusetts was the first state in the nation to adopt the One Day/One Trial system across the Commonwealth. Today, a summons to jury duty continues to empower our citizens with both a privilege and a responsibility. Jurors play an essential role in ensuring a fair and impartial system of justice for all the people of the Commonwealth, and we thank you for your service.
