Who Can Attend An Oral Argument?

With only a few exceptions, oral arguments are open to the public and anyone is permitted to attend.

There are three appellate courts and a supreme court in Washington. The three appellate courts are located in Seattle, Tacoma, and Spokane. The state Supreme Court is located in Olympia. From time to time, members of the appellate courts hear oral arguments at other locations around the state to make it easier for visitors to watch oral arguments in a city or town near where they live.

The appellate court locations and court calendars can be found at www.courts.wa.gov/appellate_trial_courts/.

Calendars showing oral argument dates and times are also available through this website.
