Welcome to Judges in the Classroom
Are you a public school K-12 teacher? Request a visit from a judge in your community
for a lesson on civics!
Celebrate Black History
In this interactive timeline, learn more about historical milestones including landmark court cases and legislation, prominent African American citizens, and African American jurists who have impacted California history.
Teachers, use it on your own or request a judge visit your classroom to discuss the struggles and triumphs known today as landmark cases.
How to Request a Visit from a Judicial Officer:
Review Lesson options. Or 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.
A coordinator will contact you once a volunteer has confirmed availability.
A pre-visit meeting between the teacher and judge will help best plan for the visit.
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!
