Project Description

This corpus includes 38 years of recordings linked to transcripts of oral arguments at the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). These materials have been provided to TalkBank by Professor Goldman, founder and director of the Oyez Project (, a vast and widely utilized multimedia archive devoted to the U.S. Supreme Court and its work. The Oyez Project, which moved to IIT Chicago-Kent in 2011, aims to be a complete and authoritative source for all audio recorded in the Court since the installation of a recording system in October 1955, and reaches millions of users worldwide.
