Know what to expect with cameras in the courtroom

The two videos posted here were created by the Missouri Press-Bar Commission in its efforts to provide guidance to reporters who are covering Missouri Courts. Judges have reported that they realize reporters in the state work for papers that are often short-staffed and they may not have extensive experience covering courts.

The judiciary worked with the Press-Bar Commission to create these videos to help reporters understand the legal system and the technicalities of the court process, in hopes it will give reporters what they need to make this task easier.

Another resource for reporters is the News Reporter’s Handbook on Law and Courts. A PDF of the handbook is available here.

You can also view the handbook, as well as a glossary of commonly used courtroom terms, on the Missouri Bar Association’s website here.
