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)

For March and April only!

Teachers, help your students learn about the important civil rights work of Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta with the lesson, "Si Se Puede."

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.
