Courthouse Tours

The Courthouse Experience Program provides students in
​grades 5-12 with an authentic opportunity to learn about the
​justice system by observing real cases and court procedures.
​Each year, nearly 5,000 students watch the law come alive on these enriching and valuable visits to the Multnomah County Courthouse and the Justice Center,
​led by committed volunteers from a wide variety of backgrounds.

Groups visit three buildings during the tour.
​It begins in the Gus Solomon Federal Courthouse,
​620 SW Main Street in Portland for a brief orientation.
​Next, students walk three blocks to the Justice Center to observe
​arraignments and community court.
​The last stop is the Multnomah County Courthouse
​where students observe trials and other court procedures.
