Court Day – Texas Supreme Court

On Wednesday, September 19, 2018, the John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute will host the Texas Supreme Court for a Court Day at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin’s Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center.

Beginning at 9:00 AM, the Court will hear two cases; there will be a short intermission between the two cases, and the second case is expected to conclude around 11:30. Following the hearings, the Court will take questions from the audience.

This is a free event, open to the public, and a unique opportunity for all of us in the Permian Basin to view our state’s highest court in action without travelling to Austin. We invite you to attend one or both cases!

Doors will open at 8:00 AM; please arrive in a timely way so that you can clear security and find a seat before 9:00. We look forward to seeing you there!
