Court Tour Program
Share |

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 have transitioned to using Sign-up Genius for gathering pertinent information regarding the teacher chaperone and attorney Court Tour Guides for each day. It is much easier to use.


Closer to your tour date, 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.
