Court Schedule

All U of A students are invited to attend this sitting of the Arizona Supreme Court. The following restrictions must be observed by all attending:

Cell phones and pagers must be turned OFF. No laptops. No backpacks. No flash photography. No food, drink or gum. Appropriate attire required; no hats worn in the courtroom.

Arrive early:  Attendees to this event must pass a security check at the door, where they will be “wanded,” and purses and small bags searched. Attendees may enter and leave between, but not during, the arguments.

Public admission to the oral arguments is free, and is part of an effort by the Arizona Supreme Court to increase the public's access to the workings of the state's highest court. At the end of the final argument, all five justices of the Arizona Supreme Court will be available to answer general questions from audience members. The Arizona Supreme Court and the College of Law welcomes citizens to take advantage of this unique opportunity to speak directly with the justices on topics of interest, though the justices are prohibited from answering questions about specific cases pending before the Court.
