This thirty-second installment continues our series on HeinOnline’s digital collections.
The U.S. Federal Agency Documents, Decisions, & Appeals collection brings together the official case law of some of the United States’ most important government institutions. This case law, also commonly known as decision law, is the body of reported opinions that are published by each agency. Some of the most significant items included in the collection are the Decisions of the National Labor Relations Board (1934-Current), the Federal Communications Commission Record (1986-Current), and the Internal Revenue Cumulative Bulletin (1919-Current). While agencies are not strictly bound by prior decisions, the decisions do have precedential value, so these decisions constitute an important primary source of the law.
In addition to agency decisions, this collection includes many interesting and useful government documents, including the Annual Energy Outlook, Crime in the United States, and the Budget of the U.S. Government. These documents, along with the decisions, provide an important resource for attorneys practicing before an agency, anyone studying a particular field in which an agency operates, or anyone studying or researching administrative law and government operations in general.
