A Journalist's Guide to the Federal Courts is part of the U.S. Courts government website. It was created to aid the reporters that are assigned to cover the courts. This is a great guide for anybody that would like to learn more about the workings of the federal courts, the players involved and the terminology used. There are descriptions of the roles of all the different judges, clerks and attorneys and descriptions of the different types of courts. There are links to almost everything discussed in the guide, such as the Code of Conduct for United States Judges and the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure.
