About the BR/MAG Judge Database

Data Dictionary Download data: JSON Download data: Excel

The Federal Judicial Center maintains a biographical directory of federal judges that is an excellent resource for scholars and practitioners studying U.S. federal courts. The database, however, is limited to Article III judges. This project is an attempt to fill in the gap by providing data on federal magistrate and bankruptcy judges. The data can be browsed online or downloaded in bulk as either an Excel/CSV or JSON file. Work on collecting biographical information on judges is ongoing and the site will be continually updated to reflect additional judges or changes in status (e.g. retirement). If you have questions or corrections please drop us a line at: legaldatalab@law.virginia.edu.
