Webcasting from the Courtroom

Court Webcasting is a new project weblog from WV Supreme Court Clerk, Rory Perry. For a list of courts who webcast their proceedings, see the list on the right hand side of the page. (Note that the link to the WI Supreme Ct is broken. Here's the right one.)

Why should legal researchers watch these webcasts? From the Moritz Legal Information Blog:

- Determine whether the court is "hot" (asks many questions) or "cold" (asks few questions) to prepare for oral argument
- Find similar cases (from your state or another state) to determine what issues concerned the judges
- Learn about the etiquette and procedures for a court before appearing there
