RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com)--Juniors and seniors at Reno High School packed inside the gym Tuesday morning to watch oral arguments in two Nevada Supreme Court cases.

The Supreme Court has held oral arguments in high schools across Nevada over the years, but students at Reno HS had a rare opportunity. All seven justices were present at Tuesday's oral arguments, usually at these type of visits, only three are present.

"Unlike the trials students see on television and in the movies, the appellate court process is complex and sometimes confusing. We want to give the students a chance to understand the role of the Supreme Court as Nevada's Highest Court and how we work to ensure that justice is served," said Chief Justice Kristina Pickering.

When the court session ended, students had the opportunity to ask the lawyers questions.

"Although Reno High School is relatively close to Carson City and students there are always welcome at the Supreme Court, realistically few students would have the opportunity to make the journey," said Justice Pickering.

The first visit to Reno HS by the Supreme Court was back in 2010. The school hopes the Supreme Court continues to visit the school every other year.
