Fall 2017

The Colorado Supreme Court and Court of Appeals provide an educational outreach program for high schools which introduces students to the state’s appellate process. In the program, Courts in the Community, each court travels at least once a year to a different high school to hear oral arguments in two actual cases at each location. In fall 2017, the Colorado Supreme Court will visit Mountain Vista High School in Highlands Ranch, and divisions of the Colorado Court of Appeals will hear arguments at D'Evelyn High School in Denver and Silver Creek High School in Longmont.

Courts in the Community began on Law Day in 1986. The program gives students hands-on experience in how the Colorado judicial system works and illustrates how disputes are resolved in a democratic society. These are not mock proceedings. They are oral arguments in actual cases from which official opinions are issued. Cases are chosen by specifically considering the interests of students.
