Similarly one may ask, what time is the Supreme Court hearing today?

The Court convenes for a session in the Courtroom at 10 a.m. The session begins with the announcement of opinions - decisions in argued cases - followed by the swearing in of new members to the Bar of the Supreme Court. These sessions, which typically last 15-30 minutes, are open to the public.

Also, is the Supreme Court in session? The Court and Its Procedures. A Term of the Supreme Court begins, by statute, on the first Monday in October. Usually Court sessions continue until late June or early July. Since the majority of cases involve the review of a decision of some other court, there is no jury and no witnesses are heard.

Just so, how long does it take the Supreme Court to make a decision?

After the justices decide what cases to rule on, they read about the history of the legal arguments. They try to learn what judges, lawyers, and other interested parties have said about it. When the justices finally hear the case, the trial usually lasts one hour. Both sides have 30 minutes to speak.
