The Court of Appeals of Indiana hears oral argument in some cases. Most oral arguments are heard in the Court of Appeals Courtroom on the 4th floor of the Indiana Statehouse, though some are heard in the Supreme Court Courtroom.
Cell Phone and Camera Policy During Oral Argument: Court rules prohibit the use of any type of camera in the courtroom during oral argument without prior approval of the court and require that all cell phones be turned off. Anyone who violates this policy will be removed from the courtroom. The Court of Appeals has additional information for the media.
Traveling oral arguments, or Appeals on Wheels, take the court across Indiana to help Hoosiers learn more about the judiciary’s indispensable role in Indiana government. They also provide opportunities for Court of Appeals judges to meet and talk with a broad range of citizens in relatively informal settings.
Appeals on Wheels typically occur at high schools, colleges, law schools and courtrooms, but they’ve also been held at conference centers, tourist sites and even retirement communities. The Court has conducted more than 430 Appeals on Wheels in 72 counties between its 2001 centennial and July 2015, although the program predates the centennial.
If your school, bar association or other organization would like to host Appeals on Wheels, please contact the Court of Appeals at 317-234-4859.
All requests will be reviewed to ensure suitable facilities, engaged partners and a minimum audience of 50.
Two free hours of Continuing Legal Education credits are available to members of bar associations that conduct a one-hour CLE program around Appeals on Wheels. Please contact the court for more information.
