The Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals will hold oral argument at The University of Toledo College of Law Wednesday, March 18, at 9 a.m. in the Law Center McQuade Law Auditorium.

The sessions are open to the public.

The court will hear argument in six cases. Arguments set for the session include a challenge to jury instructions in a criminal case, a sentencing question in a juvenile case, and a case where an employee seeks damages beyond workers’ compensation from a co-employee, a third party and her uninsured motorist carrier.

The opportunity for students to observe judges and lawyers in a real court session is an important part of the college’s oral advocacy curriculum. First-year law students are required to attend Wednesday’s session as part of their lawyering skills curriculum.

“We are very grateful to the judges of the Court of Appeals for holding sessions at the College of Law every year,” said Daniel J. Steinbock, dean of the College of Law. “Students not only get to witness the arguments, but can engage with the judges and advocates in a question period afterward.”

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 hold a brief question-and-answer period.

More information is available on the court’s calendar and docket.
