The Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals will hold oral argument at The University of Toledo College of Law Wednesday, March 12, at 9 a.m. in the Law Center McQuade Law Auditorium.

The court will hear argument in four cases. Arguments set for the session include a child custody dispute, an appeal from a murder conviction alleging ineffective assistance of counsel, and a contract dispute between business partners.

Sessions are open to the public.

“The opportunity for students to observe judges and lawyers in a real court session is a valuable part of the college’s oral advocacy curriculum,” said Terrell Allen, legal writing professor and director of the Legal Research, Writing and Appellate Advocacy Program. “We appreciate the court’s willingness to provide this useful experience and instruction for our students.”

The first session will begin at 9 a.m., and the second session will start at 10:15 a.m.

After adjourning, the court and counsel will answer audience questions.
