On Wednesday, March 8, 2006, the Court of Special Appeals of Maryland (CSA) will conduct oral argument in the Moot Court Room (LC 100) at the University of Baltimore School of Law. This is the fourth time in its 39-year history that the CSA has heard oral argument at UofB. Oral argument before a three-judge panel of the CSA will commence at 9:30 a.m. The Court will hear four direct appeals from Circuit Courts. If each advocate uses the 20 minutes allowed, oral argument will conclude about 12:00 noon.
All law students and law faculty are encouraged to attend some or all of the oral arguments. As in the Courts of Appeal Building in Annapolis, the public may freely come and go during oral argument. However, there must be silence at all times. When the three judges conclude oral argument, they will remain in LC 100 to answer student questions, except they may not answer specific questions about the four cases then being held sub curia.
