Judges in the Classroom

Judges in your community are available for visits to K-12 public schools. This school year, we've matched over 300 classrooms in 28 counties! These visits help develop a better public understanding of the third and equal judicial branch of state and federal government. Visits can be customized to meet the needs of your classroom. 


How to Request a Visit from a Judicial Officer: Review lesson options, or describe your needs on the request form. Submit the request with as much advanced notice as possible (At least 3 weeks in advance is preferred). A coordinator will contact you once a volunteer has confirmed availability. A pre-visit meeting between the teacher and judge will help best plan for the visit. Note for virtual visits: Conduct your pre-visit planning meeting on the platform to be used for virtual visits (to test connection, audio, etc.) The visit happens and feedback forms are collected!

I thought the program was outstanding! It was nice for the children to see that judges are normal people too.

“I really enjoyed working with the teacher and the students.  I had about 10 students who actively participated and we had a great discussion."

It was great! (smiley face)
