Main Content

The Mississippi Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments on the campus of The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3. A three-member panel of the court will convene at the Thad Cochran Center, Ballroom I.

The Court of Appeals periodically schedules oral arguments on college campuses and occasionally at other locations as a teaching tool for students. It is known as the Court on the Road program. The Court of Appeals began the Court on the Road program as a part of its regular calendar for oral arguments in 2005.

Each oral argument is expected to last approximately one hour. The appellant and the appellee are each allowed 30 minutes. People wishing to watch the oral arguments are asked to be in their seats 30 minutes before the oral arguments are scheduled to begin.
