• Pronouncing Dictionary of the Supreme Court of the United States

    The purpose of the Pronouncing Dictionary of United States Supreme Court cases is to help conscientious lawyers, judges, teachers, students, and journalists correctly pronounce often-perplexing case names.

  • War Manifestos Database

    This data set records all known war manifestos issued by sovereigns between 1492 and 1945. These manifestos were collected, analyzed, and coded by a research team at Yale Law School studying the various categories of claims used to justify resort to war throughout history.

  • Global Constitutionalism Seminar

    In 1996, Yale Law School launched a Global Constitutionalism Seminar, which in 2011 became a part of the Gruber Program for Global Justice and Women’s Rights at Yale. Available now online are the five most recent volumes of the Seminar. These readings provided the bases for discussions at the three-day Seminar, a private gathering of jurists on constitutional courts, Supreme Courts, and transnational courts, joining with members of the Yale Law Faculty.
