In previous years, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has heard 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 hope to continue this tradition in Spring 2017.
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.
