Instead, they farm out the work and it’s a great job for good typists with a good working knowledge of health topics and medical jargon.
1. Online Juror:
In this type of work from home, the companies will pay you to sit on mock juries to give attorneys and other jury consultants feedback on cases they are currently handling.

Be sure to read all the disclaimers and details. The sites like eJury.com will be of great help for you in this regard.
