I am a full time student and was selected for jury service and I haven’t deferred it, and I’ve been doing it for a week now and has no case but am now being put on a panel for a 13 week long trial on Monday, do you think being a student is a good enough reason to not be chosen? Also my uni has been on strike for 2 weeks and could continue for another week so I’ve said I’ll have all that work to catch up on plus 4 assessments within that time!

Yep tell them and ask to be excused from the long trial due to exams and education.
You cant miss 13 weeks of your degree or exams.

there are plenty of retired people who would love 13 weeks of jury service. you should be studying for your future.

Have you spoken to them about the coronavirus situation? They might not be able to do this with this all going on and predicted to get worse.

I think that a student will be able to, best to try. When in work, it may be harder unless you prove that it is essential that you work. Also, if you get asked again, it may be impossible to refuse if you have already deferred it before

If you can that would be good for you. I reckon they might not be able to go ahead with it now being a pandemic.

because, if they were going to minimise people being out and about then that was one factor. The judges and jury members could get ill part way through the tiial and then it would be a waste of time and money.. Self isolation.for possible symptons

I was a big fan of jury service, very insightful. It's a shame to miss out but in times such as these, needs must.
