Jury Duty

**For Medical Students Only. Non-medical students must contact their own school administrator for instructions**

If you receive a Jury Duty summons for your WWAMI state, contact your WWAMI administrator as soon as possible. They will work with you to create a letter of deferral from your foundation site dean to the jury commissioner. Be aware that you are not guaranteed an excuse from jury duty if your site administrator writes a letter.

In King County (Seattle) municipal or superior court: If you are unavailable to serve, a student can typically defer duty for one year and pick a time in the following year when they will be available to serve.
