About the State Bar of Texas’ LRE Department*

[Source: State Bar of Texas LRE Dept.]

The State Bar of Texas’ Law-Related Education Department has created Oyez, Oyez, Oh Yay!, an engaging and interactive site geared toward helping students (and their teachers) explore the court decisions that have helped shape our country and the state of Texas — and, most important, how these decisions have affected our everyday lives. What Does “Oyez, Oyez, Oyez” mean?
“Oyez” is primarily pronounced “o-yay,” although sometimes as “o-yez” or “o-yes.” It is used three times in succession to introduce the opening of a court of law, especially the U.S. Supreme Court. Word origin is Middle English and descends from the Anglo-Norman “oyez,” the plural imperative form of “oyer” (“to hear”). Thus, it means “hear ye” – a common call for silence or attention in medieval England.
