To all the Judge Judy, Drop Dead Diva, or The Good Wife fans, you'll like this one. There are lawyers who are looking for feedback on a case and how will it go before a jury. They use online jury sites like onlineverdict.com, ejury.com and trialpractice.com for inputs and as a preliminary feedback on cases. The good thing about ejurors, you will get paid for your participation.
Payment amounts vary depending on the complexity and length of the case you review, but payments start at $20 per case and can go up to $60 per case.
As an eligible online juror you may be asked to review cases that are filed in your county or federal district. You will receive an email invitation from them to review the case at your convenience, but once enough responses are received, the case will close and no additional participants are needed.
Let us put what we have learned on Judge Judy, Drop Dead Diva, or The Good Wife in good use and be an online juror. It sounds really exciting.

Virtual Assistant (typically abbreviated to VA, also called a virtual office assistant) is generally self-employed and provides professional administrative, technical, or creative (social) assistance to clients from a home office. Because virtual assistants are independent contractors rather than employees, clients are not responsible for any employee-related taxes, insurance or benefits (except in the context that those indirect expenses are included in the VAs fees). Clients also avoid the logistical problem of providing extra office space, equipment or supplies. Clients pay for 100% productive work, and can work with Virtual Assistants, individually, or in multi-VA firms to meet their exact needs. Virtual Assistants usually work for other small businesses. It is estimated that there are as few as 5,000-8,000 or as many as 25,000 virtual assistants worldwide; the profession is growing in centralized economies with "fly-in, fly-out" staffing practices.
This is a growing industry because it is a lot more cheaper to hire VAs than hiring a full time staff.
Here are the sites I know you can get VA jobs:
Happy job hunting!
