Virtual Jury Review:
Virtual Jury appears to be like the other mock juror sites, which hire individuals to review and rule on cases that the attorney will be bringing to trial.
It typically takes between an hour and 90 minutes to review a case. In most cases, virtual juries do their work online. Other jury sites pay generously for the service. But, unlike the other mock juror sites, there is no information about how much this site will pay.
How it works
If you go to Virtual Jury’s website, it will prompt you to sign up as a juror. You’ll type in a code to prove you’re not a bot, and then you’ll get a long survey that will ask all the basic demographic questions asked by the others. These include your age, where you live, whether you’re a citizen and whether you’re a lawyer or a felon.
However, this site also wants to know your political views and your income range. And, it asks a number of questions about your spouse, religion and relationship status. These may be legitimately helpful to the lawyers who want a virtual jury. But they’re a bit more invasive than the questions required at other sites.
Where the site expects you to provide a vast amount of information about yourself, it’s cagey about the information you get in return. There’s no indication about how much you might earn; what being a virtual juror here involves; or how often you might be enlisted.
$ideHusl left both phone and email messages at Virtual Jury offices, but got no response. Given the lack of response — and the fact that we can find no juror reviews, positive or negative — they get our lowest rating.
If they ever respond, we’ll update the review and rating. In the meantime, if you are looking to be a juror for mock trials, we’d suggest Online Verdict, LegalFocusGroup or SignUp Direct.
