Browsing the Federal Courts Web Archive

The Law Library of Congress recently launched the Federal Courts Web Archive. It includes a new browse page, where you will find the federal courts arranged in a list. If you click on a court in the table of contents at the top of the screen, it will take you to the link to the archive for that court. If you are searching for a United States district or bankruptcy court, you can use the clickable map or drop-down menu to choose a state or territory to drop down to link to the archive for that court.

The archival collection includes the websites of the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Courts of Appeals, U.S. District Courts, and U.S. Bankruptcy Courts. The collection also includes specialty courts such as the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, U.S. Court of International Trade, U.S. Tax Court, U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, and U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces. These sites contain a wide variety of resources prepared by federal courts, such as: slip opinions, transcripts, dockets, court rules, calendars, announcements, judicial biographies, statistics, educational resources, and reference materials.
