The U.S. Supreme Court has been front page news. To stay absolutely current on happenings in the Supreme Court, while you are at the Law School, check out Supreme Court Today . You can, for example, find out the questions presented in the assisted-suicide case argued two days ago. This is part of BNA's U.S. Law Week, which is a useful resource not only for what is going on in all of the federal courts (and some hot topics in the state courts), but a great way to come up with an interesting paper topic.
To access U.S. Law Week, you can also click on the link from the Law Library's Research Databases page. You have to be at the Law School to access any of these databases.
