Children's activity book

"What's Happening in Court?"

The children's activity book "What's Happening in Court?" is full of activities and useful information to help children and their families who may be in court for any reason -- whether they are visitors, witnesses, or directly involved in a case. Specifically the book explains what happens in court, who works there, and the rules of court.

This book was written in 1999 by the legal staff of the California Office of the General Counsel within the Administrative Office of the Courts. In 2001, Wisconsin judges, attorneys, and court staff tailored the book for Wisconsin and reproduced it with funding from the Wisconsin Supreme Court and the Milwaukee Bar Association.
