Do you want to teach your class or other group of young people
about the Judicial Branch of government? Take a field trip to the
R. Banke Justice Center.
A field trip to the Harold R. Banke Justice Center
is a great idea to consider when teaching young students how the
government works, more specifically, the Judicial Branch.
During a tour, students and
chaperons will be led around the Courthouse by an employee of the
Office of the Court Administrator. A tour will include a chance for
the group to observe actual court proceedings (which could range
from arraignments to an actual trial). Following the observation, a
Q&A session will be held with the presiding Judge if
Students will also be introduced to
the various offices housed in the Courthouse, such as the
Alternative Dispute Resolution Office (mediation) and the various
Clerks' Offices. Finally, students will have a chance to meet
Courthouse employees, attorneys, deputies and others.
A trip to the Harold R. Banke
Justice Center is a great opportunity for the youths of today to
see government in action, and is highly recommended to those who
would like to show their students what they have been learning
