Information / Visitor Reception

The Washtenaw County Courthouse building located in downtown Ann Arbor has an Information and Visitor Reception desk located in the main entrance near security. The volunteers stationed there assist people in finding their respective destinations within the court building, provide maps to other county locations, and provide general information.

Constitution Day

Constitution Day is September 17th of each year, and the Washtenaw County Bar Association celebrates Constitution Day by providing lawyers the opportunity to go into classrooms and present lessons on the U.S Constitution to students of all ages. This program requires only a couple hours of your time, but affords you the opportunity to educate students about their rights under the Constitution through innovative and dynamic lessons. If you are interested in participating, please email Lori Buiteweg.

Law Day

Law Day is May 1st, a national day of observance to celebrate our legal heritage. On this day, we reflect on how our legal system affects the lives of every American and how the freedoms we enjoy would not be possible without an independent judiciary.


There is metered parking in downtown Ann Arbor on the streets and in the Ann / Ashley parking structure.
