City of Johns Creek

Students will get an opportunity to learn about municipal governments and their court systems in Georgia’s newest cities through the third-year practice act. Currently in Johns Creek, prosecutors handle over ten court calendars a week, including arraignments, bench trials, jail pleas, environmental and business license calendars. Responsibilities of the externs would include pre-trial hearings, negotiations with defense attorneys, trial preparation, and bench trials. Each extern would be paired with a part-time prosecutor and participate in regularly-scheduled group meetings. Our hope would be that they will be able to understand the integrated process of police power with the other powers of government at the local level.
