The livestreaming of all Supreme Court oral arguments, which started last month, continues today with the June calendar, beginning in just a few hours. However, although you could watch the early-May and late-May calendars held in San Francisco, the June arguments in Los Angeles will be audio only.
The May livestreaming was excellent. The video had real-time captioning below it, and next to it on the screen was the court’s calendar and links to the argued cases’ docket and briefs. The video itself was good quality, with multiple cameras used to switch between views of the attorneys, the court as a whole, and individual justices when asking questions. The only quibble is that the justices’ voices sometimes came through a bit softer than the attorneys’.
