Events and Outreach

In addition to their regular judicial duties of issuing orders, hearing cases, and handling administrative matters, the Judges of the Alabama Middle District regularly engage in judicial outreach programs for the benefit of the community.

Courthouse Visits

Public school and private school classes, as well as civic organizations, are invited to observe certain court proceedings. Arrangements must be made in advance. Some proceedings are closed to the public, while other proceedings may not be suitable for young children.

Case Management

While the Office of the Clerk is unable to provide you with legal advice, or interpret an order or pleading you may have received, we are empowered to assist you in many other ways. For instance, we can provide forms, procedural information, and answer questions regarding your court docket.

Participating in Court

There are many ways you can participate in our court's proceedings. Whether you are a litigant, witness, family member and/or a member of the public wishing to observe the judicial branch in action, you are welcome here.
