Taking Our Show on the Road

As part of a program to show how the Supreme Court of Ohio operates, today the Supreme Court announced that it will conduct an official session at Ohio Northern University on Wednesday, Sept. 29.

Normally, we hear oral arguments in Columbus, but twice a year we visit cities outside the capital to give hundreds of students the chance to attend and see for themselves the proceedings of the Supreme Court and to be able to talk to justices, attorneys and court staff.

The upcoming Ada visit is part of our semiannual Off-Site Court Program started in 1987 and this will be the 60th time we have travelled from Columbus.

I always enjoy visiting different parts of the state and experiencing the camaraderie of the legal communities in other cities. The teachers and attorneys who prepare students for this event do such a good job – we always have such thoughtful questions to answer. So, I’m looking forward to being with those of you who will be with us on Sept. 29. See you there!
