U.S. Supreme Court Research Guide: News and Previews

News and Previews

The far-reaching effects of Supreme Court opinions mean that news about cases--which cases the Court might address, what issues the Court is considering, what the implications of Court rulings could be--is always a hot topic. 

This page describes various academic and journalistic sources of news about the U.S. Supreme Court--in anticipation of hearings, in reflection after decisions, and everything that occurs in between.

Previews of the Upcoming Term

These resources provide summaries of cases expected to come before the Court in the upcoming term. Previews generally explain the facts of the case, the way the lower courts handled the case, the reasons the Court may grant certiorari, and the implications of potential outcomes.
