Utah courts to sponsor 'Judge for a Day' program


Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The Utah State Courts are planning the 7th Annual "Judge for a Day," program in recognition of Law Day, which is celebrated on May 1.

On May 1, 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed the first Law Day as a day of national dedication to the principle of government under law.

Utah high school students are selected to participate in the program based on an essay, civic involvement resume, or teacher nomination letter. The topic, for students who choose to write an essay, is "The American Jury: We the People in Action."

Students selected to participate in the program will be paired with a judge in one of the state's eight judicial districts for one day in either April or May. The students will be given a behind-the-scenes look at court operations, which include sitting in on court proceedings, observing the duties of a judge, and asking the judge questions.

Students are asked to submit an application form by March 2, 2012. Application forms and additional information are available on the court's Web site at www.utcourts.gov/media/lawday.
