The Mississippi Court of Appeals will hear an oral argument of an appealed criminal case on Thursday, November 10, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. at Mississippi Valley State University (MVSU). The hearing will take place at the MVSU’s Sutton Building Auditorium 103. The hearing is coordinated by the Department of Criminal Justice’s Alpha Phi Sigma Criminal Justice Honor Society, Zeta Tau Chapter and in part with the Mississippi Court of Appeals “Courts on the Road” program.
This will be the 4th year that the University is hosting the Court’s proceeding on campus. The objective of the initiative is to give college and high school students an opportunity to observe and participate in a real life judicial process.
