The Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals hearing will give future litigators and local residents the chance to see the inner-workings of the region's federal appellate court.
"Hosting the Court provides our students a remarkable opportunity to learn issues in federal law, see law in action and observe excellent appellate advocacy skills," USD School of Law Dean Thomas E. Geu said in a statement.The last time the Eighth Circuit held a hearing at the school was in 1998.
Oral arguments will begin at 10 a.m. in the USD School of Law courtroom. The law school is at the corner of E. Cherry Street and W. Campus Drive. The courtroom is only accessible for the hearing through the southeast entrance off of W. Campus Drive, across from Beacom Hall. The school recommends that attendees do not bring bags and backpacks, as all parcels will be subject to search.
The USD School of Law Courtroom holds approximately 175 people, and seating is available on a first come, first serve basis.
As usual, Eighth Circuit oral arguments are open to the public.
