Jane Flynn, Last modified by Jane Flynn March 02 2018 02:05 PM

Issues & Controversies now features dozens of new, original, stand-alone articles summarizing key court cases on major issues in contemporary society. Most cover Supreme Court decisions, but lower court rulings are included as well. Each article explains the background of the case, the legal issues it raised, the court's decision, and its impact.

Court Cases can be accessed from selected main articles, from basic and advanced search, and from the new landing page linked to under the Resources drop-down.

From Main Articles: On selected main articles, links to relevant Court Cases are available on an article's Court Cases tab.
