So You Want to be a Judge?
Comic Book: What Do Lawyers and Judges Do?
Creating greater diversity in the legal profession begins in kindergarten and continues through law school. Tools like this comic book serve to engage students at an early age and introduce them to the idea that people who look like them are and can be legal professionals. This comic book is based on the Missouri Bar’s coloring Book, “What Do Lawyers and Judges Do?”, which was a project of the Missouri Bar Young Lawyers Section and the Missouri Bar Citizen Education Program.
Our outreach effort is designed to make the work of the San Bernardino County Superior Court more transparent to the communities we serve.
We do this through our speaker’s bureau, in which members of the judiciary are available to speak to groups of students and adults, to educate them on the value of community participation within the judicial system and the essential role that a strong and independent court system plays in our society.
The speaker’s bureau is comprised of both judges and commissioners, who give presentations at schools, service clubs and organizations, chamber of commerce meetings, community action groups and other public functions. Topics range from jury service and family law to the roles that courts and judges play in our judicial system.
