Introduction
CERL is involved in a number of major research projects. Each of these projects have harnessed, in some way, the expertise of CERL faculty, staff, and students. Some of these projects, such as the Civil Rights Litigation Clearinghouse ( project data sheet ), provide a rich data resource to be used by scholars, teachers, students, and the public, to better understand the legal system. Others, like the Supreme Court Forecasting Project ( project data sheet ), highlight interdisciplinary scholarship conducted by CERL Core Faculty. Each of these major projects possess a web presence. What we present here is a description of each major project, as well as some of the intellectual, technological, and administrative challenges the principal investigators faced when bringing these projects to fruition.


The DESIGN of CERL warehouses the interface suggestions we present to our collaborators. We keep them available for reference sake and figure there is no reason why folks can't walk the halls. Comments, ideas, suggestions (and grandiose, sweeping compliments!) are always welcome.
