Title: Federal Judicial Center PDF
Url: http://www.fjc.gov/public/home.nsf
Publisher: Federal Judicial Center
Description: Created by an act of Congress in 1967, the Federal Judicial Center has served as a clearinghouse of information about the federal court system for four decades. While the Center is physically based in Washington, DC, their website brings information about the court system, its history, and its judges to any interested parties with access to the Internet. From their homepage, visitors can go straight to one of the primary sections, which include "Federal Judicial History", "Publications & Videos", and "Educational Programs & Materials". In the "Publications & Videos" area, visitors can use the search engine to look for specific items of interest, or they can also browse the archive's contents by subject or by date of publication. Recent additions have included the updated second edition of the copyright law statutes to the proceedings of a roundtable discussion on the use of technology to facilitate appearances in bankruptcy proceedings. For most visitors, the "Federal Judicial History" will be of greatest interest, as it contains biographies of federal judges since 1789, the histories of individual courts, and summaries of landmark decisions.
