In honor of Constitution Day, the Nebraska Court of Appeals will convene on the campus of Concordia University in Seward, Nebraska, on September 10, 2019.
The Court of Appeals will divide into its customary two panels with three judges each to hold arguments at 9:30 a.m. and again at 1:30 p.m. at the Thom Leadership Education Center Auditorium (212 College Avenue).
The Court of Appeals will hear several cases during both the morning and afternoon sessions, followed by an open question and answer session with students in attendance. Students will be given detailed descriptions of each case to help them follow the legal arguments.
Concordia College students, along with government and social studies classes from area high schools, are invited to attend. Reporters, including student journalists, are encouraged to participate and ask questions.
This college campus initiative, designed by judges of the Court of Appeals, is intended to provide Nebraskans the opportunity to learn about the judicial branch.
