Welcome to the learningCenterLogoWest Virginia Judicial Learning Center, located on the third floor of the East Wing of the West Virginia Capitol, across the hall from the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia courtroom.  

The Judicial Learning Center offers exhibits on the history and role of the judicial branch of government. There are hands-on activities designed for school-aged children and adults that allow visitors to play the role of a judge and to test their court knowledge. There is a Supreme Court seal puzzle, scales that visitors can attempt to balance, and mini school lockers that hold information about court cases relevant to students.

In addition, visitors can get information on the rule of law, how courts work, court careers, and how the courts protect individual rights. Visitors also can explore how the courts operate in each of West Virginia’s 55 counties.
