How are jurors selected for a jury trial?

After a jury panel is selected and is taken to the courtroom, a process known as voir dire begins. During voir dire, the judge and attorneys will ask jurors questions to see if you can keep and open mind and be fair. After the juror has been questioned, the juror will either be selected or excused from that particular case. If a juror is selected, you will then receive instructions from the judge as to what is expected of you. Those jurors, who were not selected, will return to the jury assembly room and wait for another jury trial to start.
