If you have received a summons for jury duty, you should follow the clerk of court’s instructions in advance of your date of service. On your date of service, you should report to Athens-Clarke County Courthouse as directed. The clerk of courts will check you in, and you will wait with other jurors for further instructions. For your comfort, you may wish to bring a light sweater.
Parking for jurors is available in the Athens-Clarke County Courthouse parking deck adjacent to the Courthouse at 325 East Washington Street. The deck entrance is located on Hancock Avenue between Thomas Street and Jackson Street. Be sure to present your jury summons to the attendant each time you enter the parking deck.
