Juror Compensation in America

Juror per diem pay for jury duty... state-by-state

Since the early 1990s many states have undergone changes in the amount jurors are compensated… most notably Arizona and Oklahoma having provided an innovative "Lengthy Trial Fund" (pays up to $200/day). As a result, much of the information about juror compensation on the Internet is outdated and therefore inaccurate. We decided to try rectifying this.

While the intention was to refer only to statutes, often they could not be found on some government websites in which case our links go to their FAQ page (if any) or ‘juror handbook’ page (if any). According then, for those which provided juror information, all the per diem rates listed below are believed current as of the date indicated below and the hyperlinks refer only to official documentation.

Note… locating information about jury duty on these government websites was often difficult and, in a few cases, no information could be found at all. It would seem, therefore, some states are demonstrating their belief the jury system is not an integral part of government. Yet, juries are indicative of justice and justice is indicative of good government.

On government websites a link to A-Z juror information should be front and center.

"I consider trial by jury as the only anchor yet imagined by man, by which a government can be held to the principles of its constitution." Thomas Jefferson

Juror compensation as of January 1, 2014 (updated each January)
