Making of Modern Law: Landmark Records and Briefs of the U.S. Courts of Appeals (Gale)
The Making of Modern Law: Landmark Records and Briefs of the U.S. Courts of Appeals focuses on the first ninety years of the federal appellate court system's history. This collection chronicles the evolution of the appellate courts, deepening our understanding of social, economic, political, and historical issues from 1891 until the start of the Reagan era in 1980. This collection makes searchable nearly two million pages of briefs from appellants, appellees, and supporters (through amicus briefs). It also includes appellant and appellee replies, appendices, memoranda, petitions, statements, transcripts, and more.
