The Supreme Court began its Oct. 2011 term yesterday on the first Monday in October.  I recently blogged about my favorite Supreme Court resource, SCOTUSblog, but thought the start of the new term would be a good time to highlight a few other Supreme Court resources.  Last year the Supreme Court redesigned its own website, making it a little more functional and a lot more pleasing to the eye.  Last term the Court began releasing audio recordings of oral arguments on the Friday of each week cases are heard.  Oral argument transcripts are available on the Court’s website on the day a case is heard.  By far the best place to find audio recordings of older oral arguments is Oyez.  Oyez has an impressive archive of Supreme Court oral arguments.  You can even go back and listen to Rex Lee argue cases before the Court, which is especially fun if you’re a nerd like me.
