Community Members:

You are invited to attend the launch celebration of the Bothell Youth Court. BYC is a collaborative effort of the City of Bothell Municipal Court, and University of Washington Bothell. High school students are in charge of their own courtroom in legal proceedings for traffic infractions committed by teens in the community. The students are the judge, prosecutor, defense attorney, bailiff and jury.

By empowering teens, youth courts have proven to be a powerful restorative justice model that encourages creativity and prepares teens for the future. The court also foster community interests in safety, efficiency and civic engagement. Bothell Youth Court will officially begin hearing cases in February 2013.
