Operations for the Oyez Project, a multimedia archive of US Supreme Court hearings going back to the 1950s, will be taken over by the Legal Information Institute (LII) at Cornell University
Since we’ve never been very good at talking about ourselves, we thought we’d let the others do it for us this time. When he broke the story in a May 25th article titled "‘Oyez Project’ New Home Will Keep Supreme Court Audio Free to Public," Mr. Mauro [Tony Mauro of the National Law Journal] aptly noted that the United States Supreme Court “has taped oral arguments for the last 60 years and deposited them with the National Archives. Oyez makes the audio available on its website with additional information, including searchable transcripts that are synchronized to the audio.”
The Oyez Project
is currently housed at the Chicago-Kent College of Law, part of the Illinois Institute of Technology.
LII, based at the Cornell Law School in Ithaca, New York, was founded in 1992 with the goal of making American legal materials freely available on the Internet.
