Jury: Legal Aspects - Exemption

officers recent

Like women, the members of various occupational groups often have been exempted by statute from jury service—lawyers, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, school teachers, clergy, mail carriers, ship officers, airline pilots, firefighters, police officers, sole proprietors of businesses, salespeople on commission, embalmers, legislators, and others. Professional exemptions are still recognized in a great many states, but the trend of recent legislation has been to abolish them. In recent years, even judges have been known to serve on juries in courts other than their own.
