JOLIET – On April 27, the Will County Circuit Clerk’s Office swore in 27 cadet clerks as part of their annual participation in the national Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day. This year’s theme was “Count on Me.”

The children spoke with Judge Rick Mason. He described the protocol of the courtroom and how it is important to be quiet and listen. He also described the role of a jury and the witness and some of the legal process.

The cadet clerks were surprised to find out how long it took to become a lawyer, as Judge Mason counted the years before they could even take the bar exam. He also stressed the importance of staying in school and studying hard.
