Google Search Tips

Google Scholar

How do I search for court opinions?

Select Legal opinions and journals on the Google Scholar homepage or in the dropdown menu on the search results page.

How do I search for court opinions from a particular jurisdiction?

You can select specific jurisdictions on the Advanced Search page.

Which court opinions do you include?

Currently, Google Scholar allows you to search and read published opinions of US state appellate and supreme court cases since 1950, US federal district, appellate, tax and bankruptcy courts since 1923 and US Supreme Court cases since 1791. In addition, it includes citations for cases cited by indexed opinions or journal articles which allows you to find influential cases (usually older or international) which are not yet online or publicly available.

Legal opinions in Google Scholar are provided for informational purposes only and should not be relied on as a substitute for legal advice from a licensed lawyer. Google does not warrant that the information is complete or accurate.
