SOUTH HOLLAND, Ill. (May 25, 2018) – The South Suburban College Legal Studies Department will host their fifth annual Law Day on Tuesday, May 1. This year’s event will feature a live court case. Oral arguments for a real criminal First District Appellate Court case will be heard in the Performing Arts Center.

This is a rare opportunity for the community to observe the First District at work at an off-site location. Educators and students in particular are encouraged to attend.

Opening remarks will begin at 10:00am, with doors opening at 9:30. Following the arguments, the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions of the Appellate Prosecutor and Appellate Defender. The justices will return to the Performing Arts Center for another question-and-answer session at approximately 11:30am.

Attendees are welcome to stay for a Mock Crime Scene demonstration from 12:00–2:00pm in the Atrium of the Main Campus, as well as a Court Reporting Demonstration from 112:00–2:00pm in the Heritage Room. This event also provides guests with an opportunity to find out more about educational and career opportunities in the judicial field, and to learn about SSC’s Paralegal, Court Reporting, and Criminal Justice programs.
