Courtroom Proceedings

Most people's ideas about what goes on in a courtroom comes from movies, television, books, or maybe serving on a jury themselves. The image of a courtroom presented in movies, television, and books may or may not be accurate representations of courtroom proceedings, but if you're headed to court, you'll want to get a better idea of what really goes on in a courtroom and how you should conduct yourself. In FindLaw's Courtroom Proceedings section, you can find helpful articles on how to survive your day in court, tips on what to do (and avoid) as a witness, information on subpoenas, judge versus jury trials, and other related information.
