The Making of Modern Law Databases: Landmark Records and Briefs from the U.S. Supreme Court and Courts of Appeals
The law library has two useful databases for researchers from Gale: U.S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs and Landmark Records and Briefs of the U.S. Courts of Appeals.
U.S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs contains briefs and related documents from Supreme Court cases between 1832 and 1978. Previously, many of these briefs were not available through any of the library’s other legal databases, so this is a very useful for anyone doing research on older Supreme Court cases.
Landmark Records and Briefs of the U.S. Courts of Appeals contains materials from the first ninety years of the federal appellate court system’s history, and contains legal documents long unavailable or difficult to access by researchers. The coverage is 1891-1980.
