Thank you to Mrs. Coleman for visiting our Mock Trial group and sharing so much interesting information about our court system!
She recommended finding more information at www.utcourts.gov.
A few things we learned:
Locally there are district courts and justice courts and juvenile courts
There are criminal cases (misdemeanor and felony)
and civil cases.
The bailiff is an assistant to the judge -- often is a law student.
pro se = representing yourself
Most courts/cases are open -- information is open to the public
