Starting today, the Iowa Supreme Court will begin streaming its court sessions online, according to a news release from the court.

The release said approximately 100 people will be able to watch the court sessions, also known as oral arguments, online at any time.

“Oral arguments are always open to the public. However, most people cannot take time out of their busy schedules to come to the courthouse to watch a proceeding,” Chief Justice Mark Cady said in the release. “Now, people can watch the oral arguments anytime, anywhere, from the convenience of their computer, laptop, or smart phone.”

People will also be able to access recorded oral arguments from online archives, which the court stopped in 2009 after state budget cuts.
