Law Day at Montana State University will be held Monday, May 3, from 9:30 - 11:10 a.m. in SUB Ballroom A. The day includes an introduction to the legal system and case by Irma Russel, dean of the School of Law at the University of Montana, from 9:30 - 10 a.m.

At 10 a.m. the Montana Supreme Court will hear an oral argument on the criminal case State of Montana v. Brian Hayden Allen. The parties will argue whether the Montana Supreme Court's decision in State v. Goetz and State v. Hamper applies to warrantless electronic recording of telephonic communications.

The Supreme Court of the State of Montana travels around the state and has come to MSU more than 25 times. The public is invited to watch the appeal. The court won't issue a decision on that day, but will release a written opinion at a later date.
