The Oyez Project & ISCOTUSnow
The Oyez Project, which came to Chicago-Kent in 2011 with founder Jerry Goldman, leverages information technology to make materials related to the Supreme Court instantly accessible around the world. The website, www.oyez.org, which has tens of thousands of visitors a day, provides immediate access to nearly 10,000 hours of courtroom audio and is adding merits briefs and amici briefs to its already comprehensive database.
The Oyez Project’s goal is to become the authoritative clearinghouse for information about the Supreme Court. At the same time, the Oyez Project continues to leverage new technology with the release of its free app, ISCOTUSnow, for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices, giving users easy and interactive multimedia access to the Court’s work.
