Harvey Ruvin - Clerk of the Courts - Miami-Dade County, Florida

Length of Service

The State of Florida utilizes a one day/one trial jury management system. That means that on the day you report for jury service your obligation is to be available to the Court for possible selection on a trial. If you are not selected to serve on a trial or in an ongoing selection by at the end of the first day, you will not have to report again the next day. However, if on your first day, you are selected on a trial, or in a selection process, you must serve until the end of the trial selection process or until the Judge indicates that you are no longer needed. The average length of a jury trial in Miami-Dade County is three days.
