HONOLULU – The Hawaii Supreme Court will hear oral argument at Kealakehe High School Gymnasium in Kailua-Kona in the case of State v. Kaneaiakala as part of the Judiciary’s Courts in the Community outreach program, providing students an opportunity to learn more about the Judiciary’s role in government and its function in resolving disputes in a democratic society.
To prepare, the participating junior and senior students from Hawaii Island schools study a curriculum developed by the King Kamehameha V Judiciary History Center and the Students for Public Outreach and Civic Education of the University of Hawaii’s William S. Richardson School of Law. The students’ study culminates with a moot court activity facilitated by members of the West Hawaii Bar Association in which the students argue the pending case themselves.
Additionally, Na Leo TV will broadcast the argument live on:
• Spectrum Hawaii (Big Island) Channel 53 – Na Leo TV
• With livestream on Na Leo TV’s website: http://naleo.tv/channel-53/
Photographing or filming the faces of the students in the audience will not be allowed. A few students will be available for on-camera interviews following the event.
Oral argument will be followed by two separate question-and-answer sessions for the students; one with the attorneys and another with the five justices. The question-and-answer sessions will not be open to the media or the public, for the privacy of the students.
