Court for Kids
Kids helping kids understand the Marin Superior Court


Welcome!

Court is a place where people go to solve problems. Sometimes children don't understand court and what happens there. Kids might think that court is a bad place because of what they hear from family, friends, or on TV. That is not true at all. There are many great things that go on in court, and you can learn more about them, here.





Getting to Know the Court

Do you know what the State Seal is, or who makes the laws? Have you ever wondered about the history of the Marin County Civic Center? Without Frank Lloyd Wright, we wouldn't have the Civic Center. Without the Civic Center, we wouldn't be able to solve problems. Who wants that? Not me!





Under the Blue Roof

Have you ever gone past a big building with a blue roof, in San Rafael? If you have, that's the Marin County Civic Center. There are a lot of things that go on in there, but one of the really important things is court. But did you know that there are different kinds of court? If you want to learn more, watch our movie "Under the Blue Roof."





Who's Who in the Courtroom

A courtroom doesn't function all on its own. It takes a lot of important people to make sure our courts are a place where people are treated fairly. Take a look at this video to learn more about who's who in the court.
