A creation by Victoria Kwan and Jay Pinho. The map is updated regularly as new engagements are added, and please let us know if there are any we've missed or gotten wrong. Don't forget to check out our Twitter feed too!
The only free, searchable Supreme Court oral argument database on the Internet. Created by Victoria Kwan and Jay Pinho, with special thanks to Jesse Pinho for his assistance. SCOTUS Search contains oral arguments dating from the 1950s and is updated as new cases are heard at the Supreme Court. Please see this intro guide for more details.
Transcripts courtesy of (1) Oyez, a free law project at IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law (Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported license); and (2) the Supreme Court of the United States.
Please let us know about any mistakes or cases we've missed. We are gradually working our way through the transcripts to ensure uniformity (for example, to change statements attributed to "Justice Scalia" or "JUSTICE SCALIA" into "Justice Antonin Scalia"), but this is a long-term project and we welcome your assistance. Don't hesitate to get in touch with any issues or errors you spot. We're working on building a centralized system for easily submitting fixes to transcript errors as well, so keep your eyes open over the coming months.
