After some feedback on my last question I'll attempt a few more cryptic clues:

  1. Roll in attempt to become jury (8)

  2. A string of three, maybe four of all the letters. (4)

  3. Proceed! Upset mafia boss surrounds retreating, uncooked food. (6)

  4. Find praise in adult at ion conference with no tea (9)

  5. Crazy, unneeded veal, won't rise, missing Ed. (10)

I don't think it's pertinent to any clues here, but just in case, I'm a British English speaker; all clues are written in BrEng.

  • $\begingroup$ It seems better to post these individually. You then get to accept an answer to each one. $\endgroup$ – Ross Millikan Jun 2 '15 at 2:35
  • $\begingroup$ You're coming a long way! These are much better. #1 and #5 are excellent. Hope to see more! $\endgroup$ – dennisdeems Jun 2 '15 at 14:59

1:

tribunal: bun (roll) inserted into trial (attempt)

2:

cord: c (letter 3) or d (letter 4) of the alphabet

4:

adulation: no tea (t) in adult. (adult-at-ion). praise

  • $\begingroup$ Good start. Did you know you can create "spoiler blocks" by prepending a line with ">!". This will cause other users to have to mouse over to see the text. $\endgroup$ – James Webster Jun 1 '15 at 22:49

Got a couple:

Proceed! Upset mafia boss surrounds retreating, uncooked food. (6)

ONWARD - Proceed, or onward! As one might say; anagram of (upset) DON (mafia boss) around (surrounds) RAW (uncooked food) backwards (retreating)

Crazy, unneeded veal, won't rise, missing Ed. (10)

UNLEAVENED - As in bread that "won't rise"; anagram of (crazy) UNNEED VEAL (unneeded veal missing the letters of Ed)
