The conduct of judicial proceedings in which the public may be present. Some hearings and discussions are held in the judge's chambers or with the courtroom cleared of non-participants and/or the jury such as adoptions, 
sanity hearings, juvenile criminal charges, and arguments over evidence and motions which might prejudice the jury. 

The Sixth Amendment to the Constitution, later applied 
to the states under the 14th Amendment, guarantees criminal defendants a "public trial," 
so all criminal proceedings are held in "open court."
