Interested in the Supreme Court Nomination process?  The law library’s History of Supreme Court Nominations database gives you access to transcripts and reports on both successful and unsuccessful Supreme Court Nominations. [Off-Campus Link | On-Campus Link]

Or maybe you want to learn more about the Justices before they became Justices?  The archive includes their previous writing, decisions and even transcripts of oral arguments made as attorneys.

For example, you can find Justice Elena Kagan’s  old law review articles, briefs and oral arguments before the Supreme Court while working as Solicitor General.

Look smart in front of Professor Segall in next year’s Con Law class.
