Course Details

The Roberts Court

In this seminar, we will analyze the Roberts Court. This is one of the most interesting periods in Supreme Court history, and this course offers a behind-the-scenes look at the Court's operation. We will start by studying the Court's current membership and how it selects cases. Each student will be assigned to a particular Justice and will be responsible for learning about his/her jurisprudence. We also will learn about at least one case pending this Term and will simulate the Justices' judicial conference. Students will be responsible for classroom presentations and discussion of cases, as well as a final paper.
