Mark Your Calendars for 8th Circuit's Adult Program Series
Whether you're a non-lawyer, law student, or an attorney who is in the vicinity of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, the appeals court would be honored to have you in attendance at its program, "Understanding the Appeals Process," as part of its Adult Program Series. It's a touristy event geared towards non-legal folk, which makes it a perfect event for your young adult children to attend and learn a little about the legal process.
The event isn't until January, but space is limited. Here's some more information on the program:
Understanding the Appeal Process -- The Path to the Supreme Court
If you don't have kids, but you're new to the area, or are simply intrigued by the appeals court and haven't actually seen it before, this event may be for you, too.
The program will take you to the 29‐story Thomas F. Eagleton U.S. Courthouse in downtown St. Louis, Missouri. You'll also visit the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and observe an oral argument. In addition to learning about the appeal process from the Clerk of the Court, you'll get a short building tour, and will have ample opportunity to catch stunning aerial views of downtown St. Louis.
Pretty sweet, right?
Here are all of the details of the event:
- Space is limited to 20 participants
- Location: Thomas F. Eagleton U.S. Courthouse
- Date: Wednesday, January 15, 2014
- Time: 8:30-11:00 am

Not all circuits offer these unique opportunities for public education. You might as well take advantage of them to brainwash your high schoolers into following your brilliant footsteps into a life of law!
Who knows, maybe the event could also be a clever way for local lawyers like you to land a new employment opportunity? If not, at least you can stand in the courtroom and daydream about life in a black robe.
