KAMLOOPS - Dorothy has gotten herself into some trouble and has been ordered to stand trial at the Kamloops law courts.

Although it will only be a mock trial, it's one of the many events taking place over Canada's Law Week next month. Courthouses across the province open up for a night of public events and Kamloops will be holding its night on April 11.

It's a family-friendly night with activities including the Wizard of Oz mock trial, a children's scavenger hunt, RCMP forensics and police dog demonstrations, sheriffs cell tours and a forum for children to ask judges their tough questions.

According to B.C. Law Week's website, the event originated in 1983 by the Canadian Bar Association as a way of celebrating the signing of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Law Week is an opportunity for legal professionals to inform the public about their line of work.

Kamloops Law Courts is located at 455 Columbia St. and Law Day will take place April 11 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
