Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals Judges Peter M. Handwork and Arlene Singer, a 1976 alumna of the UT College of Law, directed questions to an attorney during oral argument held at the College of Law in spring 2012.

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

Open to the public, the sessions will take place in the Law Center McQuade Auditorium.

Judges Arlene Singer (1976 alumna of the UT College of Law), Thomas J. Osowik and Stephen A. Yarbrough will preside over argument in six cases.

Arguments set for the session include appeals from aggravated murder and theft convictions. Other cases on the docket ask the court to decide whether a trial court may order an owner to maintain his property if the property is the subject of other litigation between the parties in the Ohio Supreme Court, and whether a Sandusky zoning ordinance is unconstitutionally vague.

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

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