Multnomah County Circuit Court, 1200 SW 1st Ave., Portland
NO RSVP needed.
Join OWLS and the Multnomah County Circuit Court judges at the annual Take Your Kids to Work Day noontime event.
This is an opportunity for children and youth ages five and up to learn about the court process and justice system through participating in age-appropriate mock trials assisted by lawyers and judges.
Participants will be welcomed by the judges, introductions will be made of participating judges and attorneys, then kids will go to their assigned courtrooms to begin mock trials. Be sure to allow plenty of time to go through security. All are welcome. There is no charge and no need to register.
The judges ask that children in attendance be supervised by an adult and reminded to move quietly through the building, especially when in courtrooms.
In addition to mock trials, Central Courthouse tours will meet in the 1st floor lobby 5 minutes prior to start times. Tours begin at 9:00am, 10:00am, 3:00pm.
Mock trials participants meet in the 8th floor hallway at 11:30am for assignment to roles and courtrooms. Mock trials begin at 12:00pm.
Be sure to leave time to park and go through security.
