Description
California Appellate Court Legacy Project interview transcripts, biographical materials and video recordings of oral history interviews of retired justices of the California Court of Appeal, First through Sixth Appellate Districts. Interviews date from 2006 to the present.
Background
The California Appellate Court Legacy Project was undertaken in 2006 as a statewide effort to develop original sources for the study of the California Court of Appeal, First through Sixth Appellate Districts. The project records and preserves the oral histories of retired justices of and justices nearing retirement from the California Court of Appeal. The majority of the interviews have been conducted by justices serving in the same appellate district as the justice being interviewed. Prior to each interview, the California Judicial Center Library compiles background materials including biographical, decisional and bibliographic data about justices to be interviewed. Background materials are listed in the library catalog, available at http://library.courtinfo.ca.gov. The Appellate Court Legacy Project Committee and staff of the Judicial Council of California continue to schedule interviews with justices as they retire from the bench.
