United States Supreme Court

 

United States Supreme Court Cases

The United States Supreme Court is the highest court in the federal system.  Many litigants seek review by the Court but only a small number of cases are heard each term

Findlaw is an excellent site for Court opinions

go to    

  http://caselaw.findlaw.com/court/us-supreme-court         Search by party name or free text.  Be sure to find the Supreme Court opinion and not an appellate court opinion.  Look for the abbreviation  U.S. in the case citation, e.g.  369 U.S. 186.  Also make sure you have the correct year.

Follow the instructions on your syllabus on what to include in your case brief.

For guidance on briefing cases, go to https://www.lib.jjay.cuny.edu/research/brief.html   or

The United States Constitution is the supreme law of the land.  It sets out the powers of the branches of the federal government.   The states also have constitutions.  New Jersey revised its constitution in 1947.
