Topeka, Kan. - Washburn University School of Law is thrilled to announce a partnership with the Kansas Supreme Court, offering a unique opportunity for law students and the public to witness live court proceedings. This collaboration highlights Washburn’s commitment to providing its students with invaluable real-world experiences and fostering a deeper understanding of the judicial process, as well as the Kansas Supreme Court’s intention of making the court more accessible to everyone.

    On November 3, 2023, the Kansas Supreme Court will convene in the Heath Family Appellate Courtroom, marking an historic moment in legal education in Kansas. This event offers students and members of the public a rare opportunity to observe the Court in action, gaining insights into the workings of the highest court in the state.

    The focal point of this partnership is the brand-new Heath Family Appellate Courtroom, a state-of-the-art facility within the newly constructed Washburn Law building. Unlike its predecessor, the Heath Family Appellate Courtroom boasts ample seating capacity on its bench to accommodate all the esteemed justices of the Kansas Supreme Court. This ensures that observers can witness the Court's docket proceedings firsthand, further enhancing the educational experience offered by Washburn Law.

    "We’re excited to partner with the Kansas Supreme Court to bring this extraordinary opportunity to our students and the broader legal community," said Jeffrey Jackson, interim dean of Washburn University School of Law. "The Heath Family Appellate Courtroom was designed to promote legal education and collaboration, and hosting the Kansas Supreme Court exemplifies our commitment to excellence in legal education."

    The docket for the November 3, 2023 session is available on the Kansas Supreme Court's official website, allowing attendees with a chance to review the cases and issues that the Court will address during the session. This transparency ensures that attendees can fully engage with the proceedings and enrich their understanding of the legal process.
