Need a way to consult the Federal Rules of Evidence without having to lug around the print rules? How about on-the-go access to federal cases and dockets? Or directions to the federal courthouse that you will be appearing in later today? The newly updated Federal Courts app can provide you with all of this, and more. The app now provides the full text of all the federal rules of procedure (civil, criminal, appellate, bankruptcy, and evidence rules) as well as the local rules for every federal court in the country, including district, bankruptcy, and appellate courts. The app also offers access to PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records), which allows users to obtain case and docket information for federal courts. In addition, the app provides turn-by-turn directions to any federal courthouse. It’s a great tool for students and practitioners alike.
The app is available for iPhone and iPad and can be downloaded from iTunes.
