Oyez is an outstanding resource.  I teach two law related courses at the university level and Oyez is alwyas a part of my syllabus and resources.  I love the summaries of the arguments and I especially like to be able to send students back to listen to the actual oral arguments and--when it happens--the justices reading an opinion or dissent from the bench.  It gives students a human and inside look at how legal opinions are made.

Time spent reviewing site: 35 minutes reviewing this time--many hours over the years.

This website is from the Chicago-Kent College of Law and contains information related to the Supreme Court.  It reports on the case opinions and has links to the briefs.  It also has other material related to the Court, like lectures by the Justices.

Time spent reviewing site: I've used it lots.

Between this site and LII from Cornell - you can cover the Supreme Court without missing a beat. Much more user friendly than the official government sites, and easy to navigate the links.
