Interested in Justice? Become a Court Monitor. No prior knowledge of the law or court processes is expected or needed to become a FAiR volunteer. In fact, in order to serve our goal of educating the public on fair trial rights and criminal justice issues, we prefer our monitors not be lawyers. The first step is to fill out the volunteer form. Volunteers are required to attend a training where they learn about trial monitoring procedures and fair trial rights. After the training, monitors sign up to attend court hearings in the Harris County Criminal Courthouse, then fill out and submit a monitoring form. Monitors must be over 18.
