Utah Court of Appeals Hold a Special Session at SUU

Published: April 04, 2007 | Category: Special Events

The Utah Court of Appeals is coming to SUU for a special session and is planning on talking with pre-law students after the oral arguments are heard.

This special session is taking place April 5 at 10:30am in room 408 of the general education building—the mock courtroom, built two years ago.

Occasionally the court will travel so the public and students can see how the court works first hand. There are two cases that are going to be heard, and they are: the State v. Labell, and Heal v. York. The last time the Utah Court of appeals was in Cedar City listening to oral arguments was October of 2000.

After the arguments conclude the Law Club will host an informal luncheon for the judges on campus. The luncheon is open to faculty, staff and pre-law students; and students will have an opportunity to ask the judges questions as they come and go.

The Utah Court was created in 1987 to help the Utah Supreme Court with the over abundance of cases. The Court, which consists of seven judges who serve six-year renewable terms handle cases primarily from juvenile and district courts.
