Jury Trial Waiver Not Advised

In general, you should not. A jury tends to be a great equalizer. They level the field between the little guy and large business. As a result most businesses would prefer not to have their cases tried in front of a jury. A jury may involve some uncertainty. Businesses don’t like that.

In general, you do not want to give up your right to a jury trial in contracts that you sign. You may be giving up some leverage you have if you get into a dispute with that party.

Jury trial waivers may be looked at closely as to their validity. If the jury trial waiver is hidden in the small print of a contract then it may be subject to challenge.

See Brien Roche’s book Law 101 published by Sphinx Publishing for more information on this subject.
