The New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Third Department, will hold a session of Court at Albany Law School for the 14th consecutive year on Wednesday, March 25. The session will begin promptly at 1:30 p.m. in the Dean Alexander Moot Courtroom and is open to the public. Presiding Justice Anthony V. Cardona has said the sessions give the students "a greater opportunity to observe the appellate process first hand."
Albany Law School has hosted a session of the Appellate Division, Third Department, each year beginning in 1995. When the first session at Albany Law School was held on October 11, 1995, it marked the first time in over 85 years that the Court had sat at a location other than its home courtroom. That initial session also marked the beginning of a program whereby the Appellate Division, Third Department, began holding court sessions throughout the 28 counties that make up the Court's geographic jurisdiction.
