How does MyJuryInfo work?
MyJuryInfo has 3 components:
The Juror system is an electronic jury management system available to circuit courts in Arkansas. The system allows courts to manage juries from summons, jury service, and payment. The application is hosted by the Administrative Office of the Courts and is available to courts with Internet access. MyJuryInfo shares data with the Juror Software.
MyJuryInfo Court Side
The courts use this version of MyJuryInfo. It offers the ability to disqualify jurors, send emails and text messages, and print off questionnaires.
MyJuryInfo Public Side
The potential jurors have access to this version. Normally, it starts with a questionnaire. Once the questionnaire is completed, or the potential juror attends orientation, she will see a page displaying information from the court. What information she can see is controlled by the MyJuryInfo Court Side.
How much will it cost?
- AOC will provide online access to MJI for circuit courts using Juror at no cost.
- Like Juror, AOC is responsible for annual maintenance, backup, and recovery services.
- AOC provides professional services to the courts for the implementation of Juror.
How do I get my court on MJI?
- The court should send a written statement of their interest and intent to participate, signed by the clerk and the judge, to the Director of the Administrative Office of the Courts.
- The AOC will acknowledge the court’s request in writing and add the court to the list to be reviewed at a later date when all project requests are considered for selection.
- Each quarter, the AOC reviews the requests along with the progress of the projects in the portfolio that is aligned with the strategic plan of the Arkansas Judiciary. The AOC will select projects to be started when resources become available.
- When a court is selected for a project, AOC will assign a project manager to determine the suitability, risk, size and scope of the project and determine the next start date for a project based on available resources.
