Ninth Circuit Day
Each year, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals hears one half day of oral arguments at Berkeley Law during the Spring Semester. Ninth Circuit Day is a unique educational opportunity offered at very few schools, where Berkeley students are able to to watch real appellate practice in front of one of the most dynamic courts in the country.
We post the calendars of arguments at this website when we receive them from the Court each year. We often also put the briefs on reserve in the law library approximately 2-3 weeks prior to the date of argument.
Arguments typically begin at 9 a.m. and last most of the morning. Because of increased security concerns, please arrive early as you may have to check your backpack/bag, and may be subject to search by the U.S. Marshals Service prior to entry into Booth Auditorium.
