New Electronic Resource: The Making of Modern Law: Landmark Records and Briefs of the U.S. Courts of Appeals

The law library has a new electronic resource for your research needs from Gale: The Making of Modern Law: Landmark Records and Briefs of the U.S. Courts of Appeals.  This database focuses on the first ninety years of the federal appellate court system’s history, and contains legal documents long unavailable or difficult to access by researchers.  This database contains nearly two million pages of briefs from appellants, appellees, and supporters (through amicus briefs). It also includes appellant and appellee replies, appendices, memoranda, petitions, statements, transcripts, and more – all of which is searchable.  The coverage is 1891-1980.

This source is available off campus by using your CSU ID and PIN.

Also don’t forget about Gale’s U.S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs database which we have as well. This database contains briefs and related documents from Supreme Court cases between 1832 and 1978.
