Making a Federal Case Out of It

Guest lecturer, Judy G. Russell will detail the wealth of information found in the records of the federal courts: the District Court and the Circuit Court (now Circuit Court of Appeals). From bankruptcies to copyrights to patent to cases in admiralty jurisdiction and more, federal court records merit a close look.
