Hearings on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) nominee Elena Kagan begin next week (Monday, June 28th). There are some great web resources to follow this fascinating process. The Law Library of Congress has a collection of resources about her. Georgetown Law School has an even more exhaustive guide to the Supreme Court nomination process.  Lastly, C-SPAN broadcast a Supreme Court presentation on the nomination, they have numerous videos, documents, and links related to her nomination, and the network is expected to broadcast next week's hearings too.
