Policy Regarding Live Audio Streaming of Arguments
(Updated December19, 2017)


On December 19, 2017, Chief Judge Merrick Garland announced that the Court has voted to live stream any oral argument upon request in an individual case. A panel may make an exception to this policy if it determines that one is required in light of case-specific confidentiality concerns.

Requests for live streaming should be sent by email to liveaudiorequest@cadc.uscourts.gov.

To listen to live oral arguments, go to the Court's website at www.cadc.uscourts.gov. On the homepage, under Live Audio Streaming, click on the link for the live oral argument, then click the Listen Live link at the bottom of the page.

Audio recordings of oral arguments have been available online since September 2013. In addition to live streaming, audio recordings will continue to be posted by 2:00 p.m. on the day of the oral argument. An archive of audio recordings going back to the 2007-2008 term is available.

To listen to audio recordings, go to the Oral Arguments page and click on Audio of Oral Arguments. You may also listen to live streaming of oral arguments from this page under Live Streaming Audio of Oral Arguments.

Questions should be directed to Betsy Paret, Circuit Executive, at 202.216.7360 or Elizabeth_Paret@cadc.uscourts.gov.
