Junior District Attorney Program

Junior District Attorney Program

The Junior District Attorney Program is a crime prevention and educational program designed to provide middle and high school students with an overview of the criminal justice system by allowing them to observe its actual operation. The goal of the program is to provide students with a basic understanding of the criminal justice system. Upon entry into the program, students are given a signature navy blazer and are asked to abide by the Junior DA creed. Junior DA activities include observing trial preparation, viewing courtroom proceedings, and educational field trips to the Georgia Supreme Court, the State Capitol and various law enforcement agencies. The program culminates in a graduation ceremony and reception where the students are pinned with a special DA badge which they proudly affix to their Junior DA blazers.
