Ever wonder how the jury pool is assembled?

The trial jury in either a civil or criminal case is chosen from a list called a venire or jury pool that has been compiled by the court. The method of selecting names for the venire varies.

The jury pool is sometimes compiled with the help of jury commissioners appointed by the presiding judge.
