Judge for a Day

The Judge for a Day program provides eager high school students the opportunity to spend time with a judge and experience our legal system. Students have an opportunity to shadow a judge for one day from March through May. This program is offered in conjunction with national Law Day.

The 2019 Law Day theme is: Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society. Students are asked to write a short essay or submit a 90 second to 2 minute video or musical composition on the Law Day theme as part of their application. Deadline for submissions is March 7.
