3-1 Discussion: Courts of Special Jurisdiction
In addition to federal and state courts reviewing civil and criminal cases, both the state and federal court systems include courts of special jurisdiction to address particular, narrowly defined cases. From the list below, select one type of court that you are likely to engage with at some point in your professional life.

If you plan on a career as a social worker, you are likely to be called to testify in juvenile court or family court proceedings.
