The purpose of Court College is to create and strengthen relationships with the members of the community through the sharing of information and exchange of ideas. Working through various institutions, organizations, associations, and groups, we seek to better educate the community about the role, responsibilities, organization and structure of our court system in order to dispel misunderstandings, heighten awareness regarding resource limitations and build contacts with an increasingly engaged citizenry.
Court College offers members of the community an up close and personal look at how the court system operates. The program is the vehicle by which any interested individual can learn about the offices, programs, services and personnel we employ to carry out our mission.
Classes meet weekly in the evenings for two hours, for seven weeks, and are taught by judicial officials and court administrators. Classes are held in the Mecklenburg County Courthouse and other respective offices associated with the Court. Class members are also given a behind-the-scenes tour of the courthouse.
Attendants could include: Educational Leaders/Teachers, Civic Leaders, Community Leaders, Religious Leaders, Members of the Media, Business Owners and Business Leaders.
