Every semester upper level students have the opportunity to visit 2-3 Cook County Courthouses for one day Shadow a Judge events. Past events have taken place at the Juvenile Justice Division, the Child Protection Division, the Fifth Municipal District (Bridgeview), and the Second Municipal District (Skokie). 10-15 students can participate in each event. Students are paired with judges based on their interests. The Shadow a Judge events offer DePaul students a great opportunity to learn more about the court and to network.
