The Nevada Supreme Court and the Nevada Court of Appeals have moved from the Regional Justice Center to 408 E. Clark Ave in downtown Las Vegas.
Las Vegas Courthouse, 408 E. Clark Avenue
The primary courthouse for the Nevada Appellate Courts is located in Carson City. This second courthouse provides chambers and offices for the Las Vegas-based Justices and Judges of the Appellate Courts and employees of the Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC).
Persons wishing to conduct business with the Nevada Appellate Courts or the AOC in Las Vegas will find the courthouse open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. A Clerk of the Court filing box is available for appellate filings.
A grand opening and public reception has been scheduled for March 27.
The building contains 26,132 square feet of leased space, which is more than 10,000 square feet larger than the space leased by both courts in the Regional Justice Center, with an estimated lease savings of approximately $500,000.
The 72-seat courtroom on the second floor is modeled after the first courtroom for the U.S. Supreme Court. The building resembles a traditional Roman courthouse, with columns and a white stone exterior. Icons representing Nevada’s 16 counties and Carson City wrap the building.
The courthouse meets the LEED, or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design, Gold Certification level. At night the building will showcase its white rock exterior with extensive LED lighting. The courthouse is expected to become a cutting-edge, high performance building in downtown Las Vegas.
