LAWS – Legal Advancement for
West Virginia Students
The Supreme Court invites attorneys to contact their local high schools and middle schools and offer to help students learn about the appellate court system and prepare for LAWS, which is available statewide for the first time this year. LAWS – Legal Advancement for West Virginia Students – is a civic education program in which the Supreme Court holds an argument docket at a county courthouse about once a year and invites students from that area to attend. The LAWS docket this year will be April 9 at the Morgan County Courthouse in Berkeley Springs. As always, the arguments will be webcast live. This year for the first time, the webcast will be recorded and kept on the West Virginia Judiciary YouTube Channel so that students anywhere can watch during their normal class times. The cases and documents filed in the cases also are available on the West Virginia Judiciary website.
Questions should be directed to Jennifer Bundy at 304-340-2305 or email@example.com
