U.S. Federal Appellate Courts: Records and Briefs

Additional Resources

Many law libraries, including court and academic law libraries, maintain collections of federal and state appellate court records and briefs relevant to researchers in the specific jurisdiction. Items in these collections may be available through interlibrary loan or a document delivery service. Below, find a resource that provides more information about these collections (the title links to fuller bibliographic information in the Library of Congress Online Catalog).

There are many online resources with information about how to locate print, microform, and online sources of federal appellate court records and briefs as well as transcripts or recordings of oral arguments.

Subscription resources marked with a padlock are available to researchers on-site at the Library of Congress. If you are unable to visit the Library, you may be able to access these resources through your local public or academic library.
