The Kansas Court of Appeals is moving its proceedings to Kansas college and university campuses to commemorate the Sept. 17, 1787, signing of the U.S. Constitution.

Three-judge panels will hear cases Tuesday at Wichita State University, the University of Kansas and Kansas State University. After arguments, the audience will have a chance to ask general questions about the judicial process.

Chief Judge Thomas Malone will be among the judges hearing cases at Wichita State. He said in a news release that moving the proceedings gives students "a chance to see their judicial branch of government at work" and might "help spark an interest in pursuing a legal career."
