Introduction

Our Community Outreach Initiative:
Bringing Judges to the Communities We Serve

Community outreach is critical to the Los Angeles Superior Court and its mission to administer justice. Over the years, we have worked to develop strong ties with the community. These connections have been maintained and strengthened by the various community outreach efforts initiated by the Superior Court. Notably, the Court's judges volunteer countless hours to these programs to carry out the Court's mission to reach out to the diverse communities within Los Angeles County. The Court's community outreach efforts are coordinated by the Court's Outreach and Diversity Committees, with assistance from its Community Relations Office.

The Court's goal in implementing these programs is to increase access to justice for all and to increase dialogues with young people about what courts do, while encouraging youth to aspire to pursue a career in the legal profession, as lawyers, judges, interpreters, clerks, police officers, or other court-related professionals, or as other leaders in our community.

At a time when the Court's budget has been dramatically reduced, the Superior Court has been able to continue its Community Outreach program through the significant volunteer efforts of Judges, lawyers and students. Through these efforts, the Court oversees hundreds of services and programs throughout Los Angeles County that address the needs of parties as they navigate through the court system and the interests of students seeking to learn more about the justice system. From child waiting rooms and service centers for self-represented litigants, to the "power lunch" with judges, Teen Court and Mock Trial programs, the Superior Court is working to build trust and confidence among the constituents we serve. The following programs are examples of countywide initiatives aimed at expanding and enhancing the Court's relationship with the community.
