Supreme Court Case Summaries: The Oyez Project is a multimedia archive devoted to the Supreme Court of the United States and its work. It 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. The Project also provides authoritative information on all justices and offers a virtual reality 'tour' of portions of the Supreme Court building, including the chambers of some of the justices.
Real Clear Politics: This website aggregates major news stories and opinion articles on U.S. politics from major media sources and from diverse ideological perspectives. It is an excellent resource for learning about current events in U.S. politics, including electoral developments, public policy, and public opinion.
Justice in Mexico News Reports: The Justice in Mexico Project at the USD Trans-Border Institute distributes a monthly news report that provides updated information on recent news and events related to public security and the rule of law in Mexico. Students can also get involved in producing these reports by volunteering or interning with the Trans-Border Institute (contact: transborder@sandiego.edu).
TBI Border Maps and Data: The USD Trans-Border Institute gathers and disseminates information on Mexico and the U.S.-Mexican border, using geographic information systems (GIS) technology to produce maps on electoral results, sociodemographic trends, crime and security, and other trends.
The Redistricting Game : The Redistricting Game is designed to educate, engage, and empower citizens around the issue of political redistricting. Currently, the political system in most states allows the state legislators themselves to draw the lines. This system is subject to a wide range of abuses and manipulations that encourage incumbents to draw districts which protect their seats rather than risk an open contest.
