Youth Court is a juvenile justice system that empowers students to serve as defense attorneys, prosecutors and judges in cases involving their peers. It gives students accountability, education and the opportunity to have a positive influence on others' lives while providing the community with an effective and comprehensive alternative justice system.

On this evening, youth clerks, bailiffs, attorneys and judges will present a mock sentencing hearing and discuss Youth Courts' work with a special history introduction by UAA Professor Emeritus Steve Haycox. This is a great opportunity to learn what our regional Youth Courts are all about. There will also be a chance for questions and answers following the hearing.
