There are many websites that will pay you to be an online juror (aka “mock juror”) and provide your opinions about real legal cases. (For an explanation of mock jury online market research and how you can get paid to participate in pre-trial focus groups, read my article on Associated Content titled, Get Paid for Your Opinion with Mock Jury Websites.)
Below is an extensive list of online juror opportunities with detailed information and direct links to their websites. There are also a handful of links to location-specific opportunities for paid mock jury focus groups, where you must visit a physical market research facility in order to participate.
OnlineVerdict.com seeks online jurors to review cases ranging anywhere from 20 to 60 minutes long. Like most paid jury sites, payments vary according to length of research study, but Online Verdict typically pays between $20 and $60 for each case reviewed. Earnings are sent by check to the mailing address you provided upon signup. Become an Online Juror
JuryTalk.com, which is run by the Wilmington Institute Network, a trial and settlement psychology firm, is looking for Research Jurors to provide opinions on current legal cases and participate in focus groups or mock trials. Many of the research studies can be completed online; others require participation at their research facilities in Houston or Dallas, Texas. The sign up form for this paid mock jury site is very quick and easy. Juror Registration
VirtualJury.com is currently accepting application for mock jurors to participate in online focus groups. The website does not offer much information for jurors upfront; it only states that once you’ve signed up, you will be notified of any studies you are invited to, and that compensation details will be provided at that time. Payments will be in the form of written checks which will be mailed to jurors within two weeks of their participation. Become a Virtual Juror
eJury uses “eJurors” to review cases and deliver their opinions in the form of a verdict. Payment for each verdict is $5-$10, by PayPal. When new cases are up for review, eJury notifies all eligible eJurors, who may then sign into the website to access the details of the proposed lawsuit. Participants are accepted on a first come, first served basis, so it is wise to act quickly once you receive the email notification. The sign up form for ejury.com will take you an estimated five minutes to fill out and you must be comfortable giving out a few personal details such as driver’s license number, political party affiliation and city and state of birth.

Jurors for JuryTest.net may be asked to provide their opinions on legal cases in several ways, including online questionnaires, recorded voice feedback via a toll-free phone number, online chat room discussions, or teleconferences (also by way of a dial-in 800 number) in which he or she will discuss the case with other jurors for the researchers to witness live. Payments vary according to length of the case, but typically range from $5 to $50 and can be paid by check or PayPal. Please note: In order to participate in the paid mock jury research studies through JuryTest.net, you must have RealPlayer installed and operational on your computer. Register to be a Jury Test Juror

The online jury review opportunities for mock jurors offered by TrialJuries.com vary in length as they do with most other mock jury sites, but will usually take about an hour commitment of your time.

K&B National Research
K&B National Research also conducts jury research in the form of mock trials. It is not clear, however, whether or not jurors can participate online as opposed to in person at physical research facilities. The registration form does allow you to sign up from anywhere in the country though so if you have a couple minutes to spare, it couldn’t hurt to try.
