On the Docket, a project of Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism, offers a journalist’s perspective on the Supreme Court. The site lists pending and prior-term cases, with a story on each case, additional feature stories on selected cases, links to Web sites relevant to the cases, information provided by attorneys and parties in the cases, the dates for scheduled oral arguments, the questions presented to the court, names of the attorneys in the cases, and citations for the lower court opinions. Coverage dates back to the 1998-99 term. On the Docket is edited by Jack C. Doppelt, an associate professor and director of Medill’s Global Journalism program, and a graduate of the University of Chicago Law School.
