PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records) is an internet-based public access service that allows users to locate cases using the Case Locator and to obtain case and docket information from Federal appellate, district and bankruptcy courts. Users need to create an account and pay for retrieved documents. 

Pace Law School students, faculty and staff may submit specific requests directly to the reference librarians.  It helps to know the case name, court, and docket number. 

RECAP is an online archive and free extension for Firefox and Chrome that improves the experience of using PACER, the electronic public access system for the U.S. Federal District and Bankruptcy Courts.
