Welcome to the University of South Carolina's Judicial Research Initiative (JuRI). The primary mission of the JuRI is to provide a comprehensive access point to the most recent and cutting-edge research on law and judicial politics. At this website, individuals interested in law and judicial politics can download electronic datasets of court cases, obtain smaller datasets or measures of judicially relevant phenomena, read various working papers on important topics, and link to other websites containing law and judicial politics information.


Special thanks are in order to the Department of Political Science and the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of South Carolina for their continued support. Please direct any correspondence to Dr. Kirk A. Randazzo, Director of the Judicial Research Initiative either through email at or phone at 803-777-6795.
