DU Law Students to Argue Before U.S. Court of Appeals for Armed Forces

Duquesne Law students will participate in a U.S. Court of Appeals for Armed Forces case through Project Outreach. They will argue United States v. Harvey A. Gardiner II under the supervision of a member of the court’s bar. Developed as a public awareness program for the military justice system, Project Outreach allows the unique participation of student lawyers.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces exercises worldwide appellate jurisdiction over members of the armed forces on active duty and others subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice.  The Court’s five civilian judges, who will be in attendance, are appointed by the U.S. President with the advice and consent of the Senate.

Presiding over the case will be:

  • Chief Judge Andrew S. Effron
  • Judge James E. Baker 
  • Judge Charles E “Chip” Erdman 
  • Judge Scott W. Stucky
  • Judge Margaret A. Ryan

A question-and-answer session and a reception will follow.

Thursday, March 15 at 3 p.m.
