One of the most successful law related education programs is the Court Tour Program. Each year the Fairfax Bar Association, with the financial assistance of the Fairfax Law Foundation, sponsors court tours for middle and high school students in Fairfax County.
In three hours, students tour the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court, the General District Court and the Circuit Court of Fairfax County, speak with judges from all three courts, interact with attorney guides and other court personnel, participate in a mock trial and view actual trials. This program is a great way to become involved with the Fairfax Bar Association and only requires a nominal time commitment.
We ask that you sign-up to guide two Court Tours, each beginning at 9:30 AM and ending around noon. This year, we are using Google Docs to manage the sign-up process. It is a two-step process.
Step 1: Review the available dates on this link.
Step 2: Once you have selected your preferred date, please complete the online sign up form using this link.
Upon completion, you will receive an email confirming your selected date and time. Are you a new volunteer? We can pair you up with a seasoned court tour volunteer on your first tour.
