Military Court comes to College of Law

November 12, 2010

The Loyola University New Orleans College of Law will host a special session of the U.S. Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals on Tuesday, Nov. 16, at 12:30 p.m. in the College of Law, Room 308. It is free and open to the public.

The U.S. Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals is an independent appellate judicial body authorized by Congress and established by the Judge Advocate General of the Air Force. The court hears and decides appeals of Air Force court-martial convictions and pending appeals.

The special three-judge panel session at Loyola is part of the court’s “Project Outreach,” which holds court away from its permanent courthouse in Washington, D.C., and is intended to educate and demonstrate to the public the operation of a federal court of appeals and the military criminal justice system.

Following the case, the judges and advocates will be available to answer questions. A reception will follow.

For more information or for advance copies of the briefs filed by counsel, contact Jessica Howard at 504-861-5760 or jkhoward@loyno.edu.
