The United States District Court for the District of Kansas welcomes summer associates, law students and interns to meet our judges and law clerks, tour our courthouses and observe courtroom proceedings. Kansas City's Open Doors event will be from 10:30 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. on June 26. We begin with a law clerk panel discussion. Participants then eat lunch (which is provided) with our District of Kansas judges, who will share practice pointers and answer participant questions. After lunch, we will have an optional tour the courthouse. The tour will conclude by 2 p.m., and participants may stay after the tour to observe courtroom proceedings, if any are scheduled.
