There’s An App for That: The Oyez Project

Posted By on September 16, 2011

The Oyez Project is a multimedia archive devoted to the U.S. Supreme Court.  Their website contains transcripts and audio files of oral arguments, case summaries, briefs, voting alignments and more. The oral argument audio collection covers all audio from the 1968 Term through the current 2010 Term. Before 1968, the audio collection is selective. Parts of the oral argument archive have audio and transcript files that have been synched down to the sentence level.

You can access portions of the Oyez content through their two apps.  PocketJustice focuses on the Court’s constitutional jurisprudence, giving users case abstracts, opinions, and audio from their devices. OyezToday concentrates on the Court’s current activities with swift delivery of abstracts, opinions, and audio. Both apps allow you to clip and share audio segments or turns.
