HEINONLINE JUDGES AND THE JUDICIARY: EXPLORING AMERICA'S COURT SYSTEM (formerly known as: HEINONLINE CONGRESS AND THE COURTS)


Item #: 72493

Subjects: JUDICIAL ADMINISTRATION, PUBLIC LAW & POLICY

HeinOnline is proud to introduce our newly revamped and enhanced Judges and the Judiciary: Exploring America’s Court System database. Formerly known as Congress and the Courts, this collection was originally built around Bernard D. Reams, Jr., et al.’s Congress and the Courts: A Legislative History, 1787-2018, which collected congressional documents related to the composition and structure of Article III Courts. While this important work is still prominently featured in the database, it is now supported and supplemented with content that dives into more complex philosophical issues concerning the judiciary, including the removal of judges and judicial ethics, especially in the wake of recent reports that highlighted lavish gifts bestowed upon Supreme Court justices.

What's New:

  • Nearly 700 titles added, including coverage of non-Article III courts
  • A Legislative History subcollection
  • Enhanced faceting on search results
  • 14 brand-new subjects and subject-coding of all titles
  • Direct linking to our History of Supreme Court Nominations database
