Imagine the captain of a ship in the middle of a Courtroom. That is basically me. Someone has directed that this ship needs to go from point A to Z, and I am in charge of making that happen. It takes a whole crew and it’s all hands on deck, or the ship won't go anywhere. Logistically, to make sure we follow judge's orders and everything runs according to plan, I give direction to all supporting staff. A sort of master coordinator. The go-to person and go-between for any request that comes in or any order that goes out. The focal point, with literally all support staff eyes on me.
My name is Caroline and I'm one of two Courtroom Officers at the ICC.
