Audio Stream

The Supreme Judicial Court provides live audio streaming of its oral arguments. In addition, recordings of the arguments are available for approximately two weeks after the arguments. If you experience problems listening to the stream, please email so that we may determine if there is a technical issue or a common problem for listeners that we can address. Please include information on what device you were using to listen (PC, Mac, iOS, or Android) and, if on a PC or Mac, what browser you were using.

Live Streaming

The live stream will be active only while the Court is in session and on the bench. The schedule of the Court's next oral argument session, with a summary of the issues in each case, is on the Court's Calendar page.

The stream for each argument will begin approximately five minutes before the argument is scheduled to begin, but will be muted until the Court takes the bench. To listen to the stream, use the player below.
