The Pritzker Legal Research Center recently subscribed to two additional resources from ProQuest: Legislative Insight and Supreme Court Insight. Both are accessible directly via the embedded links, as well as through the law library’s A-Z list of databases.
Legislative Insight provides compiled legislative histories, including bill versions, Congressional Record excerpts, and committee reports and hearing transcripts, for major federal legislation enacted between 1789-1928, as well as select laws from 1929-1965. Content is organized by number of Congress, is searchable, and is available for PDF download. When used in conjunction with ProQuest Congressional, Legislative Insight will be a tremendously useful resource for discerning legislative intent.
Supreme Court Insight offers case histories, including briefs, dockets, joint appendixes, and transcripts of oral arguments, for argued cases from 1933-2017, as well as for certiorari denied cases from 1975-2018. PDF content is accessible via keyword search, case docket number, or U.S. Reports citation. This resource will supplement content available through Gale’s The Making of Modern Law: U.S. Supreme Court Records and Briefs, 1832-1978.
We hope you find these new resources to be useful and encourage you to reach out to our Reference Department with any questions!
