The forums are usually 2 hours and are held in the Leonard L. Williams Justice Center (formerly New Castle County Courthouse) , Jury Services Assembly Room, 1st floor, from 2:30 P.M. to 4:30 P.M. (Dates are subject to change.) Be sure to check the schedule for changes to start time, day of week, or courtroom. Remember that admission is free and there is no need to register, but you must sign-in when you arrive. For more information on the forum please call Lisa Iannelli at (302) 255-0960.
