Help testing a potential new project – SCOTUS Notes: Inside the Supreme Court Conference Meetings.
We really need your help to test a potential new project – SCOTUS Notes: Inside the Supreme Court Conference Meetings.
Earlier this month the United States Supreme Court started hearing cases about topics as diverse as who can sue an employer, the rights of the criminally accused, and how states draw redistricting lines. How would you like to look over the justices’ shoulders during the private meetings they have to discuss cases like this? That’s what this project is about: Using notes taken by the justices themselves to understand how they made decisions on the most important legal issues facing our nation.
This project has been built by the researchers themselves, using the Zooniverse Project Builder, so we need your help making sure it is up to the standards of an official Zooniverse project. Try it out now at www.zooniverse.org/projects/asimenstad/scotus-notes-inside-the-supreme-court-conference-meetings and give us your feedback via this form https://goo.gl/forms/tcAHh372rPMfcq8s2 (which you can also reach by clicking the link on the project itself).
Your feedback is pivotal when deciding what changes need to be made to these projects, and whether they should be officially launched on the Zooniverse.
