Court on the Road coming to Ole Miss

The Mississippi Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments on the campus of  the University of Mississippi at 1:30 p.m. and 3  p.m. Thursday. A three-member panel of the court will convene at the Robert C. Khayat Law Center to hear two criminal appeals.

The Court of Appeals hears oral arguments each spring at the University of Mississippi School of Law as part of its Court on the Road program.

UM professor Phil Broadhead said the Criminal Appeals Clinic provides an experience similar to an apprenticeship for students. They experience problem-solving in real cases.

“The opportunity to teach, collaborate with and mentor these students has led me to believe the clinical dynamic guides them to a shorter transition time from being a law student to becoming a lawyer,” Broadhead said.
