Fall 2022

The Colorado Supreme Court and Court of Appeals provide an educational outreach program for high schools, and sometimes universities, 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 2022, the Supreme Court is scheduled to visit Pine Creek High School in Colorado Springs. A division of the Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear oral arguments at Montrose High School and Pagosa Springs High School.

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.
