FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

STATE SUPREME COURT TO COME TO NICHOLLS STATE UNIVERSITY

As part of its month-long celebration of the law this May, the Louisiana Supreme Court announced today that it will hear oral arguments at Nicholls State University on Thursday, Sept. 5.

The visit to Nicholls State University is part of an ongoing effort by the court system to strengthen partnerships with educators at every level and to teach students about the day-to-day operations of Louisiana's courts.

Supreme Court Justice John L. Weimer, a 1976 graduate of Nicholls and a former teacher of Business Law at NSU, said, "Not only is this an outstanding opportunity for the community and for students from the region to learn about our state's highest court, but it is also an opportunity for the justices to learn about this region of the state."

Members of the community, particularly high school and college students, are invited to watch the court proceedings in NSU's Talbot Theater. Seating will be on a first-come, first- served basis.

Traditionally, the Supreme Court celebrates Law Day on May 1 each year. In 2002, the entire month of May is dedicated to reaching out to schools to provide students with an opportunity to learn about the law, the role of a judge and the court system from members of the judiciary.
