5-217 Supreme court
On the trip to the Supreme Court we as a class meet Officer West. She gave us a great tour around the building. I am really thankful for going on the trip.
The thing that I enjoyed is when e got to do the play role. I was the court reporter. The court reporter got to write down everything the wittiness says. We also learned that in every brow there is at least one court. There are so many courts all over the world I don’t know all of the names.
If I had a chance to learn about the different rooms, I would want to learn about the room where we get to see the real cases. For instance, like a murder seens. I will hate to see people go to jail cause, most of the times they do not mean to do what they did. But they always do crazy things to make them seem crazy. They don’t have anything else to do besides killing people and abusing.
I would want to be a court reporter. The court reporter is the person who writes down everything that everybody says in court.WOW! Can you imagine writing down all the words people say? If I were a real court reporter I would get paid 5,000dollars for every five papers, or so. The court reporter usually sits near the judge and types on a small machine. Court reporters type in speed, and everyone in court has to speak slowly and clearly so the court reporter can hear what they say.
Lawyers are also called attorneys. Lawyers give advice to people on their disagreements in court. It is the lawyer’s job to talk to the judge and jurors for the people who come to court. You don’t have to have a lawyer to go to court. When a lawyer talks for someone who has come to court, it means that the lawyer represents the person. Each lawyer represents only one person in court. So, if many people are involved in a disagreement, there might be more than one lawyer in court. All kinds of people have lawyers, even children! Lawyers usually sit next to the person they represent in the court.
You can probably spot the court officer very easily. The court officer is the person who makes sure the people who go to court obey the rules. The court officer is usually wearing a uniform, like a police officer’s uniform. For instance, the court officer just for the court.
Courts also have interpreters for people who don’t speak or understand English. For example, the interpreter’s job is to translate what is said in court.
Witnesses are people who come to court to tell what they have seen or heard. For example if the witnesses have seen a gun pointing at someone and the person who was holding the gun, they can hold that against them in court. For example, if someone is accused of stealing something, a witnesses might come to court to say what they saw happened
