History Project Award
from the National Council
on Public History
As mentioned in Chief Justice Rush's State of the Judiciary, the Supreme Court will travel to Corydon on April 20, 2016 to hear a modern case in a historic setting in celebration of the bicentennial. The Court is working with the Department of Education to webcast the argument for classrooms across the state and the general public for online viewing.
Seating is by invitation only for the oral argument in the historic Supreme Court Courtroom, part of the Corydon Capitol State Historic Site, located at 202 E. Walnut Street, Corydon, IN 47112. However in an effort to reach a larger audience, a program will be held in the Harrison Circuit Court, located at 300 N. Capitol Avenue, Corydon, IN 47112, to take place at the same time as the oral argument. The State Archives and the State Bicentennial Commission are supporting the event.
The Indiana State Bar Association and several local bar associations are supporting the event through an educational component with judges and lawyers visiting classrooms to talk about the judicial branch, including oral argument procedure and daily operations of the courts, before, during, or after a viewing of the April 20 argument.
Public, press, educators, judges, and attorneys can find more information below.
