About the Database

HeinOnline is proud to introduce our newly revamped and enhanced Judges and the Judiciary: Exploring America’s Court System database. Formerly known as Congress and the Courts, this collection was originally built around Bernard D. Reams, Jr., et al.’s Congress and the Courts: A Legislative History, 1787-2018, which collected congressional documents related to the composition and structure of Article III Courts. While this important work is still prominently featured in the database, it is now supported and supplemented with content that dives into more complex philosophical issues concerning the judiciary, including the removal of judges and judicial ethics, especially in the wake of recent reports that highlighted lavish gifts bestowed upon Supreme Court justices. Within the database, users will find a wide range of content, including a wealth of government documents, Federal Judicial Center publications, federal rules, legislation, periodicals, scholarly articles, and other related works.

What’s new to the collection?
  • Nearly 700 new titles added, including coverage of non-Article III courts
  • A Legislative History subcollection
  • Enhanced faceting on search results
  • 14 brand-new subjects and subject-coding of all titles
  • Direct linking to HeinOnline’s History of Supreme Court Nominations database

To help users target their research, HeinOnline editors have created 14 new subjects based on the subject matter of the titles in the collection. These subjects are:

  • Appellate Courts
  • Court Reform
  • Courtroom Scenes and Profiles
  • Courts and Technology
