    Composition and Empanelling of a Jury is about choosing a group of people to act as a collective with a view to true justice. •Potential jurors are chosen at random from the electoral roll and sent a questionnaire. •The questionnaire determines eligibility: ineligible: judges, magistrates, police officers; disqualified: convicted of a serious offence, imprisoned for more than 5 years; right to be excused: teachers, people over 65 years of age, pilots. (If the suggested reforms to the jury system take place, teachers will not be excused as of right). •If eligible, jurors attend court for minimum of three days. •Jurors are selected from the jury pool by being called at random from a ballot box by the judge's associate. •The potential juror named proceeds towards the jury box whereupon they may be challenged prior to taking their seat. •Challenges may be made to a potential juror: in criminal cases, an accused has six peremptory challenges (where no reason for challenge is stated), and unlimited 'for cause' challenges (where a reason is stated).
