U.S. Supreme Court Justices Selective Bibliography: About This Guide

This guide provides bibliographic material about U.S. Supreme Court justices, including selected biographies and other relevant titles held by the Eckstein Law Library, and links to online materials. The guide is not an exhaustive bibliography, but is a starting point, and focuses on materials accessible via the law library or available on public websites.  

The guide currently is organized by historical era.  At the present time, titles about the justices are organized based on the year each justice was confirmed.  If you are looking for books about a particular justice, search by last name using the "search this guide" box located at the upper right corner of each page.

For a complete chronological list of all the justices and their terms on the Court, consult the U.S. Supreme Court web page, Justices 1789 to Present.  Or, try the site's Timeline for a more visual version!
