2019 State of the Court


Community outreach is critical to SBSC and its mission to properly administer and provide equal access to justice. SBSC prides itself on our commitment to public services and our community. Through significant volunteer efforts on the part of our judicial officers, staff and our justice partners, SBSC strives to engage constituents both in and out of the courtroom. The Community Outreach Committee comprised of twelve judges, two deputy court executive officers, and three staff members coordinate various outreach efforts to help educate the public of all ages, all backgrounds and professions to better understand the role of the court and the judicial system as a whole. In 2019, SBSC hosted numerous programs for a variety of school-aged children, to promote dialogue on civics, judicial roles, and encourage youth to serve as leaders in our community. SBSC hosts similar programs for adult audiences such as teachers, religious leaders, and those who want to pursue a career in the legal field. LAW DAY Law Day activities are held in May every year to celebrate the role of law in our society and to cultivate a deeper understanding of the legal profession. In 2019, SBSC hosted seven Law Day student programs to promote awareness of the judiciary, foster civic education, and highlight First Amendment principles through various activities such as hosting: • 15 school field trips for elementary, middle, and high school students • A career fair highlighting various court positions • Four undergraduate campus programs • A Native American Student Law Day • Two in-school contests • A legal clinic and consultation day • An informational social media outreach campaign
