Guidelines for Attending Oral Argument Sessions

For those planning to attend the arguments in the McLaren Conference Center, the following procedures/requirements apply.

As always, every person attending oral argument sessions of the Supreme Court of California is required to go through a security screening checkpoint.

Appropriate attire is required. The Supreme Court is California's highest court and attorneys arguing before the court are expected to wear business attire. For visitors, suitable business or casual business attire could be slacks/khakis, modest skirts with long or short-sleeved shirt, blouse, polo/golf shirt. Please do not display political buttons. The following articles of clothing or attire are not permitted: t-shirts with slogans or pictures, shorts, tank tops, hats, caps, and sunglasses.

Electronic devices and equipment including cell phones, laptop computers, and cameras are not permitted in the courtroom. If an electronic device has an "On/Off" switch, it will probably not be allowed in the courtroom.

No weapons or other dangerous or illegal items are allowed in the courtroom.

Please refrain from taking the following items into the courtroom: books, newspapers, magazines, backpacks, luggage and briefcases (briefcases for attorneys involved in the cases on calendar are permitted).

If bringing prohibited items to the courtroom is unavoidable, you will be asked to check all of your personal items before going through the security screening checkpoint.
