4th Circuit Court of Appeals

We submitted part of this in a recent press release: "The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal will hold court at Dillard University to hear oral arguments on five pending cases tomorrow. The session is part of an ongoing effort to educate students and the public about the work of the appellate court. The session will convene at 10 a.m. in the Justice Revius O. Ortique Jr. Mock Trial Center. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal Judges Dennis Bagneris, Terri Love and Madeleine Landrieu will hear the oral arguments."

This was first done in 2011 and now brought back as we are ramping up our pre law program.

To ensure that this is a meaningful experience, Judge Terri Love met with a group of students last week to preview tomorrow's activities. Judge Love is part of our pre-law advisory group and coordinated the hearings on campus.

The students are excited about the upcoming event, and we will also have local high school students participate.
