PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records) is the filing system of the United States Court System.

  • The Federal Court Electronic Docket/Record System allows case name or docket number search of cases before the Federal District and Appellate Courts. 
  • Using PACER, you may obtain court dockets and associated court filings and orders.

Our agreement with PACER prohibits the library from distributing passwords and also prohibits the use of PACER outside of the law library. Please contact a reference librarian if you wish to access PACER.

PACER subscribers can use PacerPro for a better organization and searching experience.

Bloomberg Law provides access to the federal court records available through PACER. Michigan Law students and faculty are provided Bloomberg login credentials, and public patrons may use the Bloomberg Terminal on Sub-1 to access these records.
