Filed in HBCUs on February 1, 2013
On Wednesday February 6, students at Dillard University in New Orleans will have a unique opportunity to learn the mechanisms of the American judicial system. A three-judge panel of the U.S. Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments for five cases at the Justice Revius O. Ortique Jr. Mock Trial Center on the Dillard campus. Dillard University students will be able to attend the oral arguments session and see actual appellate case work in action.
The Dillard facility, where the oral arguments will be presented, was named for the late Justice Revius , the first African American elected to the Louisiana Supreme Court.
