online repositories of recorded oral arguments

State appellate courts--with the assistance of law libraries--are beginning to maintain archives of recorded oral arguments, reports Brian Barnes at the Law Librarian Blog. Among these are archives of arguments before the Mississippi Supreme Court and Mississippi Court of Appeals (maintained by Mississippi College School of Law), the Texas Supreme Court (with St. Mary's University School of Law), and the New Jersey Supreme Court (with Rutgers-Newark School of Law).

Although it wasn't included on the list on the Law Librarian Blog, another repository for appellate oral arguments is the one we have at Suffolk University Law School. Since 2005, Suffolk has partnered with the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court to archive oral arguments on our website.

One of the great features of the Suffolk/SJC partnership is that, in addition to the archive, webcasts of oral arguments are available live. To guide users, our website provides a schedule of upcoming oral arguments, a thumbnail of the issues, and a link to tune in. Access is open to students and the public alike.

It's a great tool to help students prepare for Moot Court, as well as for practitioners and members of the public to follow the appellate process in real time.

For anyone interested, here's the link:
