Court of Appeals session at law school

The Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District will hold a special session at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, in the School of Law’s Bryan Cave Moot Courtroom in Anheuser-Busch Hall.

The public is invited to hear cases involving the breach of a contract in the construction of a parking lot, a wrongful death case and the criminal appeal of a grandfather convicted of child molestation.

The court periodically holds sessions in law schools as part of an educational program.

The judges hearing oral arguments are Patricia L. Cohen, chief judge; Kathianne Knaup Crane; and Lawrence E. Mooney.

After the special session, the judges will be available to answer general questions about judicial procedure as well as judicial clerkships.

To limit the amount of disturbances to the proceedings, visitors are asked to enter and exit the courtroom only during breaks between each attorney’s oral argument.

Case briefs for the oral argument session will be on temporary reserve in the law school’s library.
