Law Day 2023
Law Day 2023 will once again provide a great opportunity for students to better understand the judicial branch and the role of the courts in the legal system. This year, we will celebrate the theme, “Civics, Civility, and Collaboration.” We are inviting elementary, middle, and high school students to visit their local courthouse and interact with judges, attorneys, and deputies, while learning about the way they all work together to uphold the values of our Constitution. In addition, we are holding two countywide contests to provide another opportunity for students to engage with the core values of the judiciary.
Visit a local courthouse and interact with judges, attorneys, and deputies, while learning about the ways they all work together to uphold the values of our Constitution. We will have mock trials, courtroom observations, and a career fair! Schools must fill out a Field Trip Request Form to be eligible. We are hosting 5th, 8th, and 11th-12th graders this year. Schools that are unable to travel can still request to participate virtually! We have activities planned for 4th-12th graders as part of our Virtual Law Week celebration. Please complete this form to request a field trip.
