The Seventh Court of Appeals will hear cases at a local university this week.

The four justices will hold court on Wednesday, February 12th at Lubbock Christian University in the Baker Conference Center.

They will hold court on the LCU campus from 10 a.m. until noon and from 1:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.

This is the fifth year in the past six years for the Court to appear on the LCU campus.

This year, the Court will hear four oral arguments in actual cases.

“Rather than hearing a lecture or reading a textbook about the Texas court system, students can actually see and hear this court as part of the judicial branch conducting hearings live on campus,” said James Shewan, assistant professor of social work and criminal justice.

Students, faculty, and staff, along with the citizens of Lubbock, will have the opportunity to hear the appeals process in action.

The Seventh Court of Appeals consists of Chief Justice Brian Quinn, Justice James T. Campbell, Justice Mackey K. Hancock, and Justice Patrick A. Pirtle.
