The Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals will hold oral argument at The University of Toledo College of Law Wednesday, March 23, beginning at 9 a.m. in the Law Center McQuade Law Auditorium.

Judges Thomas Osowik, James Jensen and Mark Pietrykowski will preside over argument in four cases on the court’s docket. Arguments set for the session include appeals from rape and murder convictions.

“This opportunity to observe judges and lawyers in a real court session is a valuable adjunct to our advocacy curriculum,” said Terrell Allen, UT 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 begins at 9 a.m., and the second session starts at 10:15 a.m. After adjourning, the court will host a question-and-answer session with the audience. The sessions are open to the public.
