Albany -- Dougherty County students learn how the judicial system works. About 100 students from Dougherty's private and public schools toured the courthouse Friday, as part of "Law Day."

Judges from the various courts told them how the judicial system works. Probate Judge Nancy Stephenson says it's important for the middle and high school students to know about the courts because every person must deal with the court system at some time in their life.

"It's something that people think they know about because they watch television, but they really don't. It just helps them have a clearly picture of what the different courts are about and why they would need to go to this or that one," said Judge Stephenson.

In 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed "Law Day" to celebrate America's heritage of liberty, justice, and equality under the law.
