Venire Legal Meaning and Definition

Here is a simplified definition of the legal term Venire.

Venire (noun)

Venire is a special word that lawyers and judges use. It's just a fancy name for the list of people who may get called for jury service. These are the people who could be picked to sit and decide if someone is guilty or not in a court case. The law says only certain people can be on this list.

For example, when we see a list of these people, we can say, "This is the Venire". That just means, "This is the list of possible jurors."
