Description:If you enjoy getting your courtroom fix from TV shows, it’s time to put down the remote and join the action by attending the Court Support Services Program. This two semester certificate program prepares you to work with judges, lawyers, paralegals and the public, providing pre-court, in-session and post-court support. In this role you will safeguard the functioning of the courtroom and by extension the judicial process. Students in Court Support Services participate in court room simulations and mock trials, working with real court equipment, court forms and court procedures. You will gain the skills to professionally communicate with court staff, stakeholders and the judiciary; administer oaths; and maintain order and decorum in a court or tribunal.

The Practicum component of this program will provide you with an opportunity to shadow professionals in a real courtroom. Our faculty and staff work closely with you to maximize this shadowing experience to ensure that you acquire the essential skills to:
- prepare exhibits
- distribute court dockets,
- prepare court documents,
- test audio and recording equipment
- set-up, troubleshoot and monitor court video technology
- arrange adjournment dates
- coordinating and managing a jury panel
