Kansas Court of Appeals judges as seen through a stylized magnifying glass

Hudson Auditorium, Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art

Every year in April, the Kansas Court of Appeals holds oral arguments on campus at JCCC.

This is a great opportunity for students and the community to observe the judicial process in action. Additionally, the judges often end each session with a Q&A, taking questions from attendees about the judicial process, being a judge in Kansas, working in legal-related fields, etc. (However, they cannot answer any questions specific to the cases on the docket.)

This event is free and open to the public. You are welcome to quietly come and go during the session. 

If you plan to bring a large group, please notify Gwenda Hawk, Associate Professor and Chair of Legal Studies, or call 913-469-8500, ext. 3184.

The session is hosted by the JCCC Paralegal Program.


To watch from off-campus, oral arguments will be live-streamed at
