There’s around a 40% chance of being summoned at some point in your lifetime so hopefully this will happen for you eventually!

Probably the same reason as why you have a mortgage free house- you're lucky. :eviltongue:

I'm registered on the electoral roll in England and Belfast.
My first boyfriend registered me at one of his properties, keeps trying to get me to move to northern ireland.

I have no idea tbh. I had to get a pardon for the last one as it was going to fall during one of my uni placements. So they said I'd be getting a letter through in a year to do it again.

No, I haven't. My mum did it a few years ago though & she found it an interesting experience.

No, but I always want to! However I've heard some people say that they've seen/heard some disturbing things during a trial and that puts me off, I know a woman who did it recently and she said she found it really interesting.

Face to face with a hardened criminal or even murderer? That doesn't sound fun.

It could also be a trial for a relatively minor thing eg. Repeated shop lifting
