November 17, 2016

All week, we’ve been telling you about FIRE’s recently launched First Amendment Library and its unique features. Today, we’re highlighting the library’s crown jewel: our First Amendment Case Database.

A free, online database of more than 900 Supreme Court cases, this ever-growing reference is the go-to guide for anyone wanting to know more about First Amendment jurisprudence.

This searchable database includes full opinions and legal commentary for lawyers and students, as well as helpful recaps for legal scholars and laypeople alike.

You’ll find cases and commentary categorized by topic—so if you’re looking for opinions focusing only on Freedom of the Press or Freedom of Religion, for example, you can see them all in one place, with one click.

What’s more, the cases are also searchable by sub-topic. Looking for only commentary on Freedom of Assembly cases dealing with parades?
