Supreme Court High School & Law School Oral Arguments

Supreme Court High School & Law School Oral Arguments

As part of the Nebraska Supreme Court’s ongoing outreach and education efforts, Supreme Court Justices hold oral arguments at High Schools throughout the state.

The visits are part of a continuing effort by the Nebraska Supreme Court and the legal community to raise awareness of court processes and the importance of civics education to our society.

For over 30 years, the Supreme Court has traveled annually to each of Nebraska’s law schools for the purpose of making the Court’s business accessible to students on their campuses.  Annual visits are made to the University of Nebraska College of Law and Creighton University School of Law.  At both the high school and law school sessions, justices spend time after the argument sessions talking to students about the appellate process and career opportunities as lawyers.  Cases are selected to demonstrate the variety of legal arguments that face the court system on a regular basis.

Students are furnished expanded case descriptions, case briefs, and a variety of informational resources regarding appellate and trial courts.
