Supreme Court statue of Lady Justice


The Institute of Judicial Administration (IJA) Oral History of Distinguished American Judges memorializes the contributions of the men and women who make the US judiciary a bulwark of freedom. This project goes beyond their written opinions to focus on education, careers, influences, and views of the judicial role. Each video interview has an accompanying annotated transcript. Together, these interviews form a definitive resource on the American judiciary, not just for legal scholars, but for all those interested in our system. Read more about the project.
