Ventura—The Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Division Six, will host its educational outreach program, “Appellate Court Experience” (ACE), for students at Fillmore High School.

WHEN: Thursday, December 10, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. 

WHERE: Video Oral Argument - https://www.courts.ca.gov/11603.htm

The Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District. Division Six, will be holding video oral argument for the duration of the COVID-19 emergency. The courtroom will be closed to the public. The public will be able to see and/or hear the court proceedings via the following link https://www.courts.ca.gov/11603.htm.

Appellate Court Experience (ACE) is co-sponsored by the Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, Constitutional Rights Foundation and the Los Angeles County Bar Association’s Appellate Courts Committee.

The ACE program has helped educate thousands of students about the appellate courts since it first launched in 2005. The program begins with a classroom curriculum administered by appellate attorneys, followed by a visit to the Court of Appeal to observe oral argument for the case previously studied in the classroom. After oral argument, the students are introduced to the appellate court process first-hand with an opportunity to interact with the attorneys arguing the case and the panel of justices who will be reviewing it.

Schools wishing to participate in the ACE program should contact CRF at Laura@crf-usa.org.

Lawyers interested in volunteering for ACE should send an email to dettinger@horvitzlevy.com.
