The Avalon Project at the Yale Law School brings together legal documents from the time of Hammurabi to the most recent Supreme Court Decisions. The materials here are divided into nine chronologically ordered sections. For example, selecting the 18th Century Documents section will bring up everything from The Alien and Sedition Acts: 1798 to the United States Constitution. The site also has the Project Diana files, which brings together full-text versions of human rights cases from around the world. Moving along, the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials and other fascinating documents can be found within the Document Collections section of the site. The Nuremberg collection offers up dozens of documents that were part of these historic proceedings from 1946.
