The Next Generation – Court Tour Program

Volunteering as a Court Tour Docent is a fantastic job! During the school year, docents tour 5th & 8th grade classes around the Martinez courthouses where the students learn about court security, the Judicial Branch, and how our legal system works. Students visit the detention facility, observe legal proceedings, meet court staff and participate as a juror, defendant or even the judge during a mock trial. They discover that being a lawyer is different from what they see on “Law & Order” and it is not easy to be a juror!

CCCBA has a cadre of dedicated court tour docents, many of whom have been lending their time and talents to the Court Tour program for years. We give a huge THANK YOU to these wonderful volunteers who help to educate the next generation of Contra Costa County citizens.
