Welcome to Judges in the Classroom

Now accepting requests for in person and virtual visits.

Judges in the Classroom is open for requests!
California public-school teachers, invite a judge from a California Court to visit your students in person, or remotely.
(Judges, if you would like to volunteer use this form)

How to Request a Visit from a Judicial Officer:

  • Review Lesson options. If one doesn't match the needs of your classroom, 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.

  • Once matched, the teacher and judge should coordinate a 30-minute phone or remote meeting to discuss classroom needs.
    Note for virtual visits
    : conduct your pre-visit planning meeting on the platform to be used for virtual visits (test connection, audio, etc.)

  • The visit happens and feedback forms are collected.
