The United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit will hold oral arguments in 303 JRCB on Wednesday, October 21. The session provides an excellent opportunity for BYU Law students to observe live federal appellate arguments.
When the Tenth Circuit holds its oral arguments at a law school, its protocol is identical to oral arguments held at federal courthouses. Court will be officially in session beginning at 8:30 a.m., and the attorneys in the specified cases will be presenting their arguments to panels of three judges.
Attending students need to arrive by 8 a.m. to go through security screening and be in their seats before the session begins. Two separate panels of judges will hear arguments during this court session.
All visiting Tenth Circuit judges will participate in a question-and-answer session with BYU Law students who have observed the arguments.
