We wish a warm welcome our newest volunteers! Twelve students spent the first few days of summer in training to join the program. They bring new talent and personality, and we can't wait to see them at hearings!

The Western Circuit Bar Association selected Athens Peer Court for its annual Liberty Bell Award! The award is given to a person or organization that "promotes a better understanding of the rule of law, encourages a greater respect
for law and the courts, stimulates a sense of civic responsibility and contributes to a good government and community." It is an honor to receive this recognition!
Athens Peer Court was profiled in the Athens Clarke County ACCent for May 2013. You can read that profile online.
Our newest profile is of Kemarcis. Learn why he joined Athens Peer Court and what his favorite moment has been so far.
Athens Peer Court celebrated its first birthday on March 6th! One year ago we held our very first hearing. It's been a great year and we look forward to celebrating many more birthdays!
Our third co-hort of students completed their training and are ready to serve as loyal APC volunteers. We welcomed our first middle schoolers, and are proud to count more than 40 students from five schools among our volunteers!
