The Northern District has set up a new page on its website collecting educational information about the Court and the Dirksen Courthouse.  The Northern District intends the site to help school groups planning to or interested in visiting the Court.  It is a great resource for visiting school groups, but it is also interesting for members of the Northern District Bar.  In addition to logistical information and educational background on the operations of the district courts, it also provides the Court’s historic highlights.  For example, there are lists of famous trials and appeals.  No patent cases made the list, they were bumped by defendants like Capone, Hoffa, the Chicago Seven and public officials from Project Graylord.
