In this second episode in our 101 First Street series, we go inside oral arguments at the Supreme Court. Who talks first? How long until they get interrupted? After it's over, then what? Plus, you'll hear actual audio from the arguments in Maryland v. King, and we'll provide you with a lame joke to annoy your friends.
How does the Supreme Court actually work? How does the Court decide what cases to hear? How do you pronounce "certiorari?" What's the difference between a relist and a reschedule? Why are some briefs grey? In this inaugural episode of 101 First Street, the First Mondays crew answers all these questions—and more.
