UT students and the public will have a chance to hear appellate arguments when the Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals convenes Wednesday, Nov. 1, in the McQuade Courtroom, located in Health and Human Services Building Room 1419.
Oral arguments at the free, public session hosted by the Paralegal Studies Program will begin at 9 a.m.
Presiding over oral arguments will be a panel of three judges from the Ohio Sixth District Court of Appeals: Arlene Singer, a 1976, UT law alumna; Thomas J. Osowick, a 1981 UT law alumnus; and James Jensen.
Arguments set for the session include appeals from a murder conviction and personal injury decision.
“This will be a great chance for UT paralegal students to observe judges and lawyers in a real court session,” said John J. Schlageter III, senior lecturer and director of the Paralegal Studies Program. “The court’s willingness to hold arguments on campus is appreciated as it provides an unparalleled experience and instruction for our students, as well as area high school students.”
Approximately 100 students from Maumee and Whitmer high schools will be in Health and Human Services Building Room 1711 to watch a live stream of oral arguments from the courtroom.
After adjourning, the court will host a question-and-answer session with the audience.
