How do I find records and briefs from the U.S. Supreme Court or the U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeal?

"Records and briefs" are written statements filed by parties in a case and written reports of proceedings in a case (e.g., briefs, oral argument transcripts, and dockets). The Law Library of Congress has an extensive collection of records and briefs filed in federal appellate court cases (U.S. Supreme Court and U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeals). Researchers can visit the Law Library's online research guides for an orientation to our collections of records and briefs and for other useful resources for conducting this type of research.
