How does one trying to get off of JD deprive a Jew of getting a fair trial?

When the initial questionnaire comes to your house, DON'T FILL IT OUT!!

Then you're a lot less likely to be called in the first place.
Have you tried that? You can violating something or other for not doing your civil duty. And even if you did get away with it, prosecution in other areas where the dan's dealer forum lurker resides may not be the same.

One thing to consider in trying to get off jury duty is that you are depriving Frum people on trial of a fair trial.

In addition you are depriving guying from a fair trial and or justice for committing a crime.
According to the Ramabam (and perhaps other I have not yet read) one of the 7 Noahide laws we try to impress upon the gentiles is to establish courts of Justice.

I personally never got summoned to jury duty, so Idk what I would do.
But I would probably not say I study Jewish law all day, as it can be a Chillul Hashem.....

Judge: Is there any reason you could not serve as a juror in this case?

Juror: I don't want to be away from my job that long.

Judge: Can't they do without you at work?

Juror: Yes, but I don't want them to know it.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Can your yeshiva provide a letter that you are a full time student?
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

They think it's a privilege...
 Chances are you won't make it to actually being a jury.
