Ever wanted to sit in the Supreme Court and see what goes on? Come early to the Front Plaza and there might just be a seat available. Watch attorneys argue their case in front of the Supreme Court justices. If the oral argument portion of the Term is over, there is still a chance to hear the justices when they release their opinions and orders for earlier cases in mid-May. If you’re in town on a day the court isn’t here, don’t worry, there are plenty of exhibits, lectures and movies in the justice’s place every day.
The building itself is quite a sight. Highlights include a statue of John Marshall, marble and bronze spiral staircases, the Court Chamber, and the famous phrase “Equal Justice Under Law” scribed on the architrave in the front entrance.
