STUDENTS GET TO SEE WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE A JUDGE FOR A DAY
Salt Lake City, Utah—Utah students will get a first-hand look at what it takes to be a judge.
The Judge for a Day program provides eager high school students the opportunity to spend time with a judge and experience our legal system. Students have an opportunity to shadow a judge for one day from April through May.
This program is offered in conjunction with national Law Day. The 2018 Law Day theme is, “Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom.” Students were asked to write a short essay on the Law Day theme as part of their application.
This year 17 high school students applied and were accepted. They will be meeting with judges from Ogden, Farmington, Salt Lake, West Jordan, Provo, and Kanab.
Reporters who are interested in covering a job shadow day in their area can contact Geoffrey Fattah at email@example.com or office: 801-578-3994, cell: 801-712-4545. Upcoming dates with students will be posted on the Courts’ Twitter feed: @UtahStateCourts.
