The Crowley Courts Building is located in Dallas, TX. It houses several different types of courts, ranging from family courts, district courts, juvenile courts, and drug courts. As part of the Creekview Law and Criminal Justice Academy, a trip to Crowley can be an eye-opening experience. Because of several high-profile cases in the Dallas area, many students are already familiar with Crowley, however, the trip is extremely valuable for bringing a real sense of the courtroom to the student.Court House
