La. Supreme Court to hold court at S.U. Law Center
BATON ROUGE - The Louisiana Supreme Court will hold court at Southern University Law Center on Tuesday afternoon to hear oral argument on a family law case.
The session is a part of an ongoing effort to educate and inform students as well as the general public about the work of the Louisiana Supreme Court.
The oral argument will begin at 2 p.m. in Rooms 129-130 AA in Lenior Hall.
The session will be open to law students, university and high school students, faculty and the general public as space is available.
The Court periodically uses other venues other than the Supreme Court building in New Orleans as this practice is known as “riding the circuit.”
Louisiana Supreme Court Chief Justice Bernette Joshua Johnson and Southern University Law Center Interim Chancellor John Pierre jointly announced the visit.
“Before transportation made it possible to travel easily to New Orleans, the Louisiana Supreme Court was constitutionally required to ‘ride the circuit’ to ensure citizens statewide would have access to justice,” Chief Justice Johnson said.
The Louisiana Supreme Court last held court at Southern University Law School in 1997.
According to Interim Chancellor Pierre, the S.U. Law School is “delighted” to host the session because of the “high priority” the school places on civil engagement and access to legal education.
