Students and teachers from South Milwaukee High School will attend the Supreme Court oral argument March 15 as part of the award-winning Court with Class educational program.
The students will learn about the Supreme Court by observing an oral argument live in the Supreme Court Hearing Room at the state capitol. During oral argument, lawyers on each side involved in a case make their points while being questioned by the justices. After oral argument, the students meet with a justice, who explains the role of the court and how a case is decided.
Teachers and students who are unable to make it to Madison in person may view arguments live or archived online on WisconsinEye. A live audio stream and archived recordings of past oral arguments are also available online. Additional teaching resources are available on the Wisconsin court system’s website.
