A panel of three justices of the Massachusetts Appeals Court will hear oral arguments in six appeals in a special session to be held on the campus of University of Massachusetts Boston. The sitting, part of the Appeals Court's educational outreach program, is open to the public.

Oral arguments for each case take approximately 30 minutes. Seating is on a first come, first served basis. The SJC Rule for Cameras in the Courtroom will apply.

Immediately following the session, members of the panel, Chief Justice Phillip Rapoza, Hon. Scott Kafker and Hon. William Meade, will conduct an informal question and answer period for students on general topics related to the role of Massachusetts Appeals Court.  (Pending matters will not be discussed.)
