Wednesday, April 15, 9–11:30 a.m.
Esch Hall, Ransburg Auditorium
The Court holds approximately 60 oral arguments at the State House in Indianapolis each year and occasionally schedules arguments outside the capital. Traveling oral arguments allow students, press, and the public in other areas of the state the opportunity to see the work of the Court. This April 15th, the Court will hold a special session of oral arguments at the University of Indianapolis.
What is an oral argument?
Public Supreme Court proceedings are called “oral arguments,” which provide the Justices with the opportunity to ask attorneys questions about the cases. Usually, oral arguments last 40 minutes to an hour. An honorary bailiff will call the court to order. Each side has 20 minutes to argue. Typically the appealing party will open the argument, the other side then responds, and then the appealing party has the last word. More information including rules for attending Supreme Court oral arguments can be found online.
There will be a limited number of spaces available for UIndy students, faculty and staff. If you are interested in attending please register at the button below.
