I received a “Notification of Selection for Jury Service”. My first reaction was that, now I’m retired, it might be an interesting experience to serve on a jury. And the question about “current employment” seemed hopeful: it was to the effect whether I’m currently employed by a person admitted to legal practice in Victoria. Well, no, I’ve recently (been) moved to the status of fully retired, so I’m not employed (by anyone).
However, the next question put an end to my hopes. It asked whether in the past 10 years I’ve been employed as a lawyer. Hmm, no fudging that one, so it looks as though jury service is out of the question for a few years yet.
