"Nota Bene" means "note this well" or "take particular notice." We at the O'Quinn Law Library will be posting tips on legal research techniques and resources, developments in the world of legal information, happenings at the Law Library, and legal news reports that deserve your particular attention. We look forward to sharing our thoughts and findings and to hearing from you.

OpenCourt Project

OpenCourt is a pilot project that broadcasts the proceedings of the Quincy District Court in Massachusetts via the internet. The project is run by WBUR, Boston’s NPR news station, in cooperation with the Quincy District Court and the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts. Video can be streamed live or accessed through the daily archive. The goals of the project are to increase public awareness of how the courts function and to serve as an example to courts around the country who may want to adopt this technology. The Quincy District Court, one of the busiest courtrooms in the state, handles both criminal and civil cases.

More information about OpenCourt can be found on the project’s FAQ page. To view the proceedings, go to the OpenCourt Live page or view the Livestream Schedule.
