7th Court of Appeals hears Lubbock cases at Tech law school

Posted: Updated:

The state's Seventh Court of Appeals hears a couple of its cases at the Texas Tech law school Monday.

It usually presides in Amarillo and covers 46 Texas counties.

Four of the justices are Texas Tech alums.

Other law school alumni get to argue their cases at their alma mater with a captive audience of current students and even some high schoolers.

"We always try to select cases that are going to pique the interest of the students and something they can apply in their classrooms work, as well as get a feel for what the practice of law is really like," Justice Patrick Pirtle said.

Both were criminal cases appealed out of Lubbock.
