STATE SUPREME COURT TO COME TO
UNIVERSITY OF LOUISIANA AT MONROE


Louisiana Supreme Court Justice Chet D. Traylor and University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM) President James Cofer announced today that the Louisiana Supreme Court will hear oral arguments at the University on April 7, 2003. The visit to ULM 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.

According to Justice Traylor, a 1969 graduate of Northeast Louisiana State University, now known as ULM, "The Supreme Court’s decision to hold court at the University at Monroe is a historic and momentous event for the people of northeast Louisiana. The last time the Supreme Court sat in Monroe was June 1894. The people of Louisiana need to know that this is their Supreme Court. This event will take the court to the people, and will allow our high school and college students, as well as the community at large, to experience a rare opportunity to see the Supreme Court in action and the decision-making process which affects all of our lives."

Members of the community, particularly high school and college students, are invited to watch the court proceedings of Louisiana’s highest court on ULM’s campus. Seating will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

For more information on the Louisiana Supreme Court visit to ULM, contact Valerie Willard at (504) 599-0319 or Veronika Avery at (318) 342-5444.
