  • "What do Judges consider when imposing sentences?"
  • "What happens to juveniles who break the law?"
  • "Are all individuals who are charged with a crime eligible for bail?"
  • “What is a domestic violence injunction?”
  • “How many people are on death row in Florida?”

Inside the Courts is a free, four-week class taught by Ninth Circuit Judges that gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the court system. The 2017 Inside the Courts program will be held on March 7, 14, 21, and 28, 2017.
