School of Law to Host Missouri Court of Appeals, Western District

The Missouri Court of Appeals, Western District, will convene court at the School of Law on Wednesday, November 8.

A four-judge panel consisting of Chief Judge Mark Pfeiffer, ’92; Judge James Welsh; Judge Gary Witt, ’90; and Judge Edward Ardini Jr., will hear oral arguments at Hulston Hall in three cases beginning at 1:00 p.m. Judge Pfeiffer will preside.

The School of Law has become a regular stop for the Western District when it convenes court away from its headquarters in Kansas City. The court convenes oral arguments outside of Kansas City to give individuals an opportunity to observe a part of the judicial system they do not normally see, and familiarize those attending with the court’s role in the judicial system.

The court has jurisdiction over appeals from trial courts in 45 counties, which includes all of northwest Missouri and most of central Missouri.
