Youth volunteers are needed to fill the crucial roles of prosecuting and defense attorneys. No legal studies background is needed; although an interest in the judicial system and the role of attorneys is a plus.
During this training, youths who are interested in becoming Teen Court and Teen Court Too attorneys will receive training from practicing attorneys on courtroom decorum, questioning, objecting and code of conduct.
