Supreme Court Oral Argument Audio Streaming
The Supreme Judicial Court now provides live audio streaming of its oral arguments, and streaming of the recordings of arguments for approximately two weeks after the arguments, as a service to the public. If you experience problems listening to the stream, please email us at email@example.com 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.
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 Oral Argument Schedule page. The Court's schedule for the year is available 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.
The recordings of arguments are available here shortly after the day of argument through the Friday two weeks after the argument.
