My law professor said that if ever we got the chance to sit on a jury we ought to. He said it'd be a good experience.
It depends what you look for. You could get a boring case and be over and done with after a day. Or you could get an interesting case and be there for months.
Whatever you choose to do, sit or not, you MUST respond when requested. You can be jailed for ignoring the summons. Go be in the pool and then get let go before being put on the actual jury.2

Not bad at all, I spent two weeks as the foreman on the jury for a trial involving two deaths charged as First degree murders. We were only sequestered for one night. Deliberations took a few hours over two days. Being a part of the process was fascinating. I enjoyed the interaction with other jury members. Most jurors had such a positive experience that we met for dinner a week after the trial was over. I run a tight and fun jury.1
