Jury trial sites


As of 29 October there are 234 main jury courtrooms available, supported by 10 jury courtrooms in Nightingale Courts and 4 jury courtrooms in other existing HMCTS court accommodation. We understand from HMCTS that this figure has since increased to 242, and they expect the remaining enabling works to be completed over the weekend in order to meet their target of 250 jury enabled courtrooms by the beginning of November.

Court hearing jury trials

Following rigorous health and safety assessments, King’s Lynn Crown Court will restart jury trials next week, bringing the total to 78.
