New Law Says College Students Can Postpone Jury Duty

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - A newly signed law will allow college students to skip jury duty, instead of skipping classes.

Governor Rick Snyder signed the legislation Tuesday, saying jury duty is "an important part of our civil responsibility," but added it can be disruptive for a student's studies.

Now full time college students can postpone jury duty until the end of the school year.

A similar exemption is already in place for high school students.
