Follow these steps to find a Supreme Court Case:
- From the library home page, click on the A-Z Database List link.
- Next, click on letter N and locate Nexis Uni, one of our best legal databases.
- Once you are in Nexis Uni, click on the Criminal Justice button under the Discover Topics section at the bottom of the page.
- Once you are in the Criminal Justice topic, scroll down about half way to see recent Supreme Court decisions on the left and Landmark Supreme Court cases on the right.
- Each case title is hyperlinked so you can click on it and go right to the case. If you don’t see the case you are looking for, use the search box at the top to enter the title of the case. Next to the magnifying glass, be sure to click on “All Nexis Uni.”
- Then, narrow down to Category: cases and Jurisdiction: United States Supreme Court. Then you can type in the title of the case you are looking for.
If you still are not able to find the case you need after trying these steps, please contact the Reference Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or via chat, and we can help you brainstorm keywords or offer additional suggestions.
