The Commission has announced March 19 and June 19 as the Chicago open house dates for the first half of 2014.
The program will begin at 9:15 am. After an overview of the court process, visitors will observe arbitration hearings and review-level oral arguments. After oral arguments end, there will be a question-and-answer period with commissioners. The program will end around 12 noon.
There is no charge to attend, but registration is limited. When the Commission announced an open house in Chicago in January 2010, the seats filled up on the day it was announced. Subsequent programs also filled up and have been well-received. In all, over 800 people have signed up to attend. You can read the announcement and sign up here.
