Annual Reports of the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States
Introduction by: Shelley L. Dowling
Beginning with Chief Justice Warren Burger’s first annual report in 1970, this important collection offers a historical overview of the accomplishments, as well as the needs and goals, of the federal judiciary. Each year, the annual reports are used as a forum by the Chief Justice to detail the current condition of the federal judiciary through caseload statistics, committee accomplishments, and enacted, as well as pending, legislation that affects the courts. In addition, the reports provide a forum for a discussion of the management of the federal courts, providing all the issues that should be evaluated in the coming years. All lawyers, law librarians, legal historians, and law students will find this publication to be both interesting and informative; truly a must-have for the library community!
