Public Access for Arguments

Printer-friendly version

Given the extraordinary public health emergencies in the National Capital Region and the resulting restrictions on public access to the courthouse, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit is providing media and public access to the live audio of each panel scheduled for argument during the January 2021 court session. 

Access information for each panel will be posted below by 9:00 a.m. (Eastern) each day of argument, with the conference lines available for connection starting at 9:15 a.m.  Attendees should plan to connect to the conference line no later than 9:45 a.m.  The public access conference lines will be available in “listen only” mode, with a separate line used to access each panel.  Recordings of all arguments will be posted on the court's website after the conclusion of arguments each day (link).

Public Access Information for Session Panel Arguments

Because of limited on-site staff availability, the Clerk’s Office will neither be able to provide technical assistance to anyone trying to access the conference lines nor be able to provide access information either ahead of time or beyond what is posted on the court’s website.
