The Kansas Supreme Court is heading to the University of Kansas in Lawrence as part of its ongoing outreach to familiarize Kansans with the high court, its work, and the overall role of the Kansas judiciary.

It will be the Supreme Court's first visit to Lawrence in the court's 158-year history and it will be the 10th time the court will hear cases in the evening.

Oral Argument and Public Reception

The public is invited to attend the special session to hear oral arguments in person. Court will be in session from 6:30 p.m. to about 8 p.m. Monday, April 1, 2019, at the Lied Center, 1600 Stewart Drive, on the KU campus in Lawrence.

The court will hear oral arguments in two cases. After the session concludes, the justices will greet the public in an informal reception in the Lied Center lobby.

If you can't attend in person, watch a live webcast of the oral arguments online at Watch Supreme Court Live! accessible from the judicial branch website at www.kscourts.org. Another option is to watch an archived recording of the proceedings after the event. Kansas Judicial Branch Homepage

Kansas courts — including district courts, the Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court — provide the people of Kansas a venue to resolve disputes through a legal process by interpreting and applying the law and by determining when laws are unconstitutional.
