Legal Junkie Heaven – Supreme Court Oral Arguments Available the Same Day They Are Heard

Posted by pbsweeney on September 15, 2006

How cool is this:

Beginning with the October 2006 Term, the Court will make the transcripts of oral arguments available free to the public on its Web site on the same day an argument is heard by the Court.

This is not as much fun as being able to listen to the arguments live in real time, but its a nice step forward and an interesting note about the direction of Chief Justice Robert’s administration.

In the past, the transcripts had been posted on the Web site approximately two weeks after the close of an argument session. Previously, transcripts could be obtained sooner than they were posted on the Court’s Web site by making arrangements in advance and purchasing them from the Court’s contract reporting service.

Transcripts can be located by clicking on the “Oral Arguments” prompt on the home page of the Court’s Web site and selecting “Argument Transcripts.”

Transcripts will be listed by case name and the date of oral argument. Transcripts are permanently archived beginning with the 2000 Term on the Court’s Web site. Transcripts prior to the 2000 Term are maintained in the Court’s Library.
