Listen to Oral Arguments and Opinions on

The Oyez Project (pronounced ˈōˈyā) by the Chicago-Kent College of Law is a fantastic resource for all Supreme Court cases. It features very brief summaries of cases, audio of oral arguments and audio of the opinions. The audio files date back to when recording began in 1955, so you can listen to many historically important cases.
