Judge Staci Williams created the free, non-political judicial education outreach program, the Citizens' Civil Academy to educate Dallas County citizens about the civil court system. The goal of the Citizens' Civil Academy is to ensure that citizens have a better understanding of not only the civil court system but also the inner workings of the George L. Allen, Senior, Courts Building. Citizens will be empowered with knowledge about the civil court process so they will be encouraged and excited about participating in the legal system.CCA in Dallas, TX
