The newest North Carolina Business Court, located at Wake Forest School of Law, is hearing its first case Tuesday, according to court officials.

With the installation of the state’s fourth business court, Wake Forest Law joins a small number of law schools in the nation that are home to a working court.

The court provides a forum for students to see an actual working court in action as the majority of the hearings are open to the public.

"What a great way to start our new year," said Ann Gibbs, Associate Dean of Administrative and Student Services.

The scheduled trial, which began at 10 a.m., is between Vogler Reynolda Road, LLC and SCI N.C. Funeral Services Inc.

The court will hear cases, which are assigned by the Chief Justice of the North Carolina Supreme Court, involving complex and significant issues of corporate and commercial law.

A formal dedication ceremony is planned for 5 p.m. Jan. 18.
