Teen Court is a juvenile diversion program that trains high school students to serve as peer jurors for youth convicted of minor crimes. Students receive training from Teen Court staff, attorneys, police officers and teachers about the juvenile justice system, civil rights and the principle of restorative justice (repairing harm caused by one's actions). Crawford Academy of Law has participated in the Teen Court program since 2011.
