In Clark and Washoe Counties, 5th – 12th grade students spend a morning in the state and U.S. District Courts to gain first-hand knowledge of both Federal and Nevada civil and criminal judicial systems. The students are able to view actual cases and court procedures from jury selection to sentencing.
To prepare students for the court experience, teachers are provided with student and teacher guidebooks explaining the processes and the terminology common to the court system. Judges and other personnel often spend time answering questions in their courtrooms.
Project REAL reimburses for bus transportation and provides all guidebooks and materials at no cost! Please visit the Applications Page to reserve Your Day in Court.
Project REAL educates K-12 students about the principles of democracy, law and the responsibilities of citizenship.
Bringing law and civic education back to Nevada’s classrooms, we offer a variety of programs. Find out more on our program pages.
All programs are provided to schools at no cost.
