The Supreme Court has been back in session for one week, and the Euliano Law Library has pulled together some resources for following Supreme Court activity this term.
For summaries and discussions of all of the cases set to be heard by the Supreme Court this term, see the October 2 issue of the Preview of United States Supreme Court Cases, an ABA publication available to the Barry Law community via HeinOnline.
Other published previews of the 2017-2018 Supreme Court term include:
- Adam Liptak, New York Times
- United States Law Week, Supreme Court Preview
(via Bloomberg Law, requires login)
We are also looking forward to the implementation of the Court’s new electronic filing system on November 13. Once the system is live, virtually all new filings will be available for free on the Court’s web site.
Please contact us if you have questions about any of the above resources or you would like assistance with Supreme Court research.
The Preview of United States Supreme Court Cases has been published since 1973. It is now available electronically on HeinOnline. For those tracking Court activity, this is an invaluable resource. Click the “Create eTOC Alert” button to get each new issue emailed to you upon release (contact your Barry law librarian if you need assistance).
Published monthly from September through April, each issue provides a summary of the procedural history of each case that will be heard by the Court in the month to come, and presents an analysis of the legal issues, including a summary of the arguments by both sides. The most recent issue was released March 20; the table of contents is pictured below, and lists the cases previewed.
We are lucky to have an amazing faculty here at Barry University School of Law. Not just great and inspiring professors in our classrooms and clinics, they are true scholars in every way — prolific authors and respected legal experts who often gain national exposure for themselves and for Barry.
Recently, Professor Michael Morley was quoted in an Associated Press article on Fortune.com:”What Happens if a Disputed Election Goes to the 8-Member Supreme Court?”
And Professor Benjamin Edwards contributed a new article to the University of Oxford Business Law blog: “Self-Regulation’s Dark Side.”
Make sure you congratulate Professors Morley and Edwards when you see them on campus! Professors, you bring honor to our school and our Barry community.
