(Practical) learning experiences

FIU today hosted an oral argument of the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces, as part of the court's Project Outreach, a public and military education program. My colleague Eric Carpenter, who joined the faculty this year after twenty years in the Army, including a stint teaching at JAG School, arranged the visit. His Military Justice class wrote an amicus brief and one student was given ten minutes of argument. The court followed the argument with a public Q&A session for students, military lawyers and personel, and others.

It was a great learning experience; it would be great if other courts would so similar things in law schools and other public places.

The Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims hears argument at law schools on a regular basis and has for over a decade. They do a Q&A session for students after each argument as part of the program.
