CQ Press Supreme Court Collection
The CQ Press Supreme Court Collection blends historical analysis with timely updates and expert commentary of Supreme Court decisions, biographies of Supreme Court Justices, Supreme Court institutional history, and the U.S. Constitution. Featuring summaries and analysis of more than ten thousand major decisions, it offers unique contextual framework and insight into the Court and its decisions. This collection also includes powerful analysis tools that allow researchers to query opinion alignment and voting bloc data to fit their research needs.
The database includes case summaries and topic coded voting behavior from 1941 to the present, plus box scores for landmark cases dating to the Court’s founding. The Collection includes “Court Reports” by Supreme Court expert Kenneth Jost. These reports provide timely analysis of current topics and decisions from the Court, helping users better understand the history and workings of the Court while also teaching them how to analyze Court opinions for themselves.
