Carefully done by whom? And to what end?

Been in a Courtroom lately? Been on a Jury lately?

As a matter of fact, I was in a courtroom on Monday of this week, and it was the third time in 12 months. Got called for jury duty but I can never get on one because I always have business trips already booked and ticketed that prevent me from serving (I don't commute every day by car, I commute once a week, every week, by plane), so I get postponed and come back 6 months later.

Why, have you? Is there a process by which those who are interested can volunteer rather than wait for the summons and deal with how things shake out? I'm sure being on a particular jury can enlighten someone as to how that particular judge's kingdom is run, but that is by no means a guarantee that it's an experience typical of other jurors throughout the land.
