Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Teachers from across the state will be getting an up-close view of the judicial system through a one-day workshop hosted by the Indiana Supreme Court and the Indiana Bar Foundation.

More than 80 teachers, nominated by judges and members of civic or legal organizations, will be arriving in Indianapolis Thursday for the Indiana Supreme Court Civic Education Workshop.

The event will include sessions on problem-solving courts, juvenile and family matters, and the appellate process. In addition, the teachers will attend a Supreme Court oral argument, Nick McIlquham v. State, 49S05-1401-CR-28.

After a luncheon with the justices, judges and other representatives of the legal community, the educators will attend a workshop featuring members of the press who cover the courts.

The Indiana Supreme Court provides civic education materials and programming to teachers through its Courts in the Classroom outreach project. Teachers from over 35 counties in Indiana will be attending the workshop.
