State Appeals Court To Hear Cases At WSU, KU, KSU



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."
