The Supreme Court plays a critical role in our democracy, but much of the information about how it works is not easily accessible. As a nonprofit devoted to covering the Supreme Court comprehensively, without bias and according to the highest journalistic and ethical standards, SCOTUSblog fills that gap, at no charge to our readers and without commercial sponsorship or advertisers.

Over the past 15 years, SCOTUSblog has become an essential resource for practitioners and nonlawyers interested in the Supreme Court. The blog provides detailed coverage of many of the courts cases, along with access to all related filings. First, we feature the petitions for certiorari that is, requests for the court to review a case on the merits that raise significant legal questions. Second, we report on every merits case the roughly 75 the court agrees to hear each year before the court at least three times: before and after oral argument and after the decision. Third, we provide real-time and interactive coverage of the courts opinions as they are released through a live blog, where we report on the implications of the decisions and respond to readers questions.

Our coverage extends beyond individual cases to look at broader trends and issues. For example, we provide a daily round-up of court coverage and commentary by other news outlets and websites, without regard to ideology or perspective, as well as statistics about the court. We also publish analytical pieces and special projects, focusing on everything from potential nominees to the court to the legacy of retired justices. Background materials such as a glossary of terms and a summary of Supreme Court procedure help explain the workings of the court.
