The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit will visit Tulane Law School on Wednesday, February 6, 2013, for its annual sitting in the Law School.  A panel of judges – including the Chief Judge of the Circuit and two of Tulane’s own distinguished alumni – will hear arguments in three cases on appeal to the Court.  The cases cover a range of legal issues relating to immigration, terrorism, evidence, and employment law.

The panel includes Chief Judge Carl E. Stewart, Judge W. Eugene Davis (L ‘60), and Judge Edith Brown Clement (L ‘72).  Arguments in the first case begins at 9:00 a.m. in Room 110 of Weinmann Hall, and the Court’s sitting is expected to conclude around 11:00 a.m.  Doors to Room 110 will open at 8:15 on Wednesday morning.  Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis.  Pursuant to court rules, there will be no overflow room and no cell phones, cameras, book bags, or recording devices will be allowed in Room 110 during the sitting.
Following the Fifth Circuit sitting, there will be a panel discussing federal clerkships.  The panel will be moderated by Judge Kurt Engelhardt (U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana) and will include eight current Fifth Circuit clerks, including one recent Tulane Law graduate.
