Delaware Court of Chancery to hear oral arguments at Delaware Law School


The Delaware Court of Chancery will hear oral arguments outside its normal courthouse setting when Vice Chancellor Sam Glasscock III visits Delaware Law School on Thursday, Feb. 1. The hearing is scheduled to commence at 1 p.m. in the Ruby R. Vale Moot Courtroom in the Main Law Building at 4601 Concord Pike, Wilmington.

This unique opportunity allows the Delaware Law community to witness the legal process firsthand, as the court hears oral arguments in Jenna Harper v. G. Michael Sievert, a case in which T-Mobile US, Inc. stockholder Jenna Harper alleges breach of fiduciary duty claims against current and former members of T-Mobile’s board of directors, including current CEO and director G. Michael Sievert.

The proceedings promise to be both educational and engaging, providing insight into the workings of our legal system.

Before the hearing, there will be a one-hour panel presentation on the history and jurisdiction of the Court of Chancery and the benefits of judicial interships, externships, and clerkships for the court. The panelists will include Glasscock and Magistrates in Chancery Selena E. Molina, Loren Mitchell and Bonnie W. David. Primarily an informational session, it will provide an opportunity for students to make personal connections with judges seeking candidates for their chambers. The panel will take place at 11:30 a.m. in room 237 of the Main Law Building.

“We are honored to host the Delaware Court of Chancery,” said Dean Todd Clark. “As a corporate law scholar, I am enthusiastic about my first opportunity to experience their visit and to hear a live oral argument. More importantly, I am grateful to share this experience with DLS's students, faculty, and staff.”

Note: The event will be handled following the same protocol as a court event held in the Court of Chancery courtrooms – no cell phones, no videotaping, no recording, and no pictures during the oral argument and that applies to all in attendance. The media may request an authorization from the court for the use of a laptop for note-taking purposes only.
