New Supreme Court Term

As many of you probably know, the Supreme Court began its 2012 term this week. If you are interested in learning more about what is coming up this term and keeping up with all of the action, there are a number of resources that can help. In addition to the Supreme Court’s website, the ABA’s Preview site has information about upcoming cases including the questions presented as well as links to the merit briefs and amicus briefs. Or try the Oyez Project from Chicago-Kent College of Law. That website contains information about the facts of each case along with transcripts and audio of the oral arguments. And of course, SCOTUSblog is also following the cases with case previews, argument recaps, and news round-ups.

If you are just interested in learning more about a few of the notable cases coming up this term, try the term preview from Cornell’s Legal Information Institute or recent articles from the New York Times and Washington Post.
