How Do Our Courts Work?

You've seen many trials play out on television and in the movies, but how does the court system really work? Join us for the Fresh City Life My Branch Our Courts series and find out!

This 6-week series is presented by Our Courts Colorado, a joint activity of the Colorado Judicial Institute and the Colorado Bar Association, to help educate the public about state and federal courts in Colorado in a nonpartisan way. Learn about how judges are selected, how courts are kept impartial, the processes of both a civil and criminal case, and how bankruptcy and divorce proceedings go through the courts. Join us for one session, more, or the whole series at the Ross Cherry Creek Branch library, each Wednesday at 6 p.m., starting May 2.
