Federal Online Legal Resources: Court Rules

A collection of online legal research resources relating to federal law and the United States government.

Did you know ...

Each one of the 89 United States District Courts, as well as each of the 13 United States Courts of Appeal, have their own "local" rules that attorneys and pro se litigants are expected to follow. Since these rules can differ from court to court, it is important to check these local rules before appearing before the court.

Local rules can be found on the official websites for each of the federal courts.
