Office of the Clerk Overview

Virtually all of your contact with the Nevada Supreme Court regarding matters pending before the court will be with the Clerk's Office.  The Clerk's Office is where you can ask questions regarding the status of a case, find records relating to cases pending before the court, and file briefs and other documents.

In addition to being the custodian of the court's records, the clerk keeps the court's docket, schedules oral argument, and issues writs at the direction of the court.  The Clerk's Office also administers the court's settlement program and oversees the court's publications.

Oral Arguments

Most matters on the court’s docket are submitted “on the briefs,” which means the court will make its decision based upon the briefs, appendices, and other documents that have been filed in a matter.

However, some cases are scheduled for oral argument at the court’s request.  “Oral argument” refers to counsel’s spoken arguments to the court in support of their position on a matter before the court.  Oral argument may be before a panel of the court or the full court (en banc).  The justices may, and often do, ask questions of counsel during oral argument.

The court's oral argument calendar is available HERE.  Audio files of oral arguments may be accessed in the Prior Oral Arguments section.  Additionally, most arguments can be viewed on the internet via the court's Webstream on the day of the argument.
