Court of Appeals To Begin Airing Webcasts

Following on my post from a few days about the Court of Appeals beginning to provided selected briefs online, this Baltimore Sun article reports that the Court has now decided to begin airing webcasts of oral arguments. The Court's website already contains a page about the webcasts. The page states that the Court's first webcast is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 30. The page further states "Webcasts will be archived and made available on this site a few hours after the conclusion of the last argument scheduled each day." Unclear is whether the Court plans to webcast all oral arguments, or selective cases. (Once again, thanks Scott Stevens from the Baltimore County Law Library for this).

If you're looking for webcasts for the Maryland legislature, you won't find any. But, since 2000, the Maryland General Assembly has posted audio recordings on the MGA website of House and Senate proceedings from the legislature's most recent session. The MGA also has audio taped recordings of Senate floor debate archived back to 1992. Contact the Department of Legislative Services for obtaining copies of these tapes.
