Oral Argument

The Court strongly encourages all attorneys and their clients to provide substantive speaking opportunities to less experienced attorneys during any of the Court's motion hearings, status calls in open court, in chambers' settlement or pretrial conferences, and especially during evidentiary or trial proceedings. The Court recognizes that newer attorneys do not have as many opportunities to appear and argue in court. Although oral argument is not necessary for the Court to rule on the majority of motions filed before it, the Court will consider scheduling oral argument if a party requests it and commits to entrust the argument to an attorney who has been out of law school for fewer than six years.
