Justices to hear oral argument at East Grand Rapids High School

As part of its “Court Community Connections”?program, the Michigan Supreme Court will hear oral argument in People v Hammerlund on Wednesday,  April 24, at East Grand Rapids High School, 2211 Lake Drive SE in Grand Rapids. A debriefing session with attorneys will follow the oral argument.

While the Supreme Court normally hears oral argument at the Michigan Hall of Justice in Lansing, justices and staff travel to various communities as part of “Court Community Connections” which the Supreme Court started as a public education program aimed principally at high school students.

“The court hopes that by bringing the ‘Community Connections’ program to the schools, students will have a much better idea of the legal system and what goes into making a decision,” Michigan Supreme Court Chief Justice Bridget McCormack said.  “We hope the argument helps answer some of the questions that students discussed with their mentors prior to today’s event.”

The oral argument can also be viewed live at https://courts.michigan.gov/Courts/MichiganSupremeCourt/oral-arguments/live-streaming/Pages/live-streaming.aspx.
