Institute on the Supreme Court of the United States

Today I’m blogging about a very informative source about the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS).

IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law has an Institute on the Supreme Court of the United States (ISCOTUS), which is directed by Professor Carolyn Shapiro. According to its website, ISCOTUS “provides information, educational resources, and scholarship” on the SCOTUS, and has three main components:

the ISCOTUS Academic Center;

the Oyez Project (providing courtroom audio and briefs) and ISCOTUSnow (a blog on the Court); and

the Civic Education Project (promoting public education about the Court).

You can read more about each of these components at the links above.

The ISCOTUS website, ISCOTUS now, also has various useful features including Featured Stories on the Court, and a Weekly Roundup of news items about the Court.

The Weekly Roundup for October 10 can be found here: http://now.iscotus.org/news/weekly_roundup_october_10_2013

The site also links to an interesting recent segment from Chicago Tonight on WTTW, where Professor Shapiro and other commentators preview the Court’s new term. The piece can be seen at http://chicagotonight.wttw.com/2013/10/08/supreme-court-s-new-session
