Supreme Court Traveling Docket

6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 30, 2017 Southwestern College

The Kansas Supreme Court is heading to Southwestern College in Winfield as part of its ongoing outreach to familiarize Kansans with the high court, its work, and the overall role of the Kansas judiciary.

It will be the Supreme Court's first visit to Southwestern College in the court's 156-year history, and it will be the sixth time the court will hear cases in the evening.

Oral Argument and Public Reception

The public is invited to attend the special session to hear oral arguments in person. Court will be in session from 6:30 p.m. to about 8 p.m. Thursday, March 30, in the 441-seat Richardson Performing Arts Center in the Christy Administration Building on the Southwestern College campus at 100 College Street in Winfield.

The public is invited to observe the proceedings as the court hears oral arguments in two cases. After the session concludes, the justices will greet the public in an informal reception in the Richardson Performing Arts Center lobby.

Quiet, Please

Talking during oral arguments is prohibited. If you arrive after proceedings start, or you must leave the auditorium before it ends, be as quiet as possible entering and exiting the auditorium. Also, do not talk immediately outside the doors to the performing arts center.

Security Screening

If you attend in person, plan to arrive before 6 p.m. to allow time to get through security screening. Follow these guidelines to make your check-in as quick and easy as possible:

  • Do not bring large bags, large purses, backpacks, computer cases, or briefcases.
  • Do not bring knives, pepper spray, firearms, or weapons.
  • Do not bring electronic devices like laptop computers, handheld games, personal digital assistants, or tablets. If you have to carry a cell phone, it must be turned off or its ringer silenced, and it must be stored out of sight.
  • Do not bring food or drink.

Court and college staff will not be responsible for property left outside the performing arts center.

If you can't attend in person, watch a live webcast of the oral arguments online at Watch Supreme Court Live! accessible from the judicial branch website at www.kscourts.org. Another option is to watch an archived recording of the proceedings at another time.
