Morgantown, W.Va. (AP) -- West Virginia's Supreme Court is going on the road.

The justices will travel to Morgantown to hear five cases Tuesday at West Virginia University's College of Law.

The court also will judge the college's annual George C. Baker Cup moot court competition.

A moot court is a training exercise for law students involving hypothetical cases.

Real cases before the court include an appeal of the Division of Motor Vehicles' revocation of a driver's license for driving under the influence and a man who is challenging his sentences on several sexual abuse charges.

Four of the five justices are graduates of the College of Law.

Justice Brent Benjamin received his law degree from Ohio State.
