Groups of fifth graders spend one hour with lawyers, judges, or other professionals such as police or sheriff officers, court clerks, or court reporters. They experience some of the day-to-day activity of these professionals and observe their relationship to both criminal and civil laws.
The fifth graders may go in small groups to various offices around their city, or they may go as a group to a courthouse. All groups of students are chaperoned by adults. Legal professionals may wish to carry out a mock trial demonstration or engage the students in some other type of experiential activity such as writing a simple contract or a will.
