Read the course description below to learn how this course will be taught.
This course will be taught entirely online via Zoom.
The course will deal with the post-Court-packing Supreme Court, across the total range of constitutional issues, right up to the present. The focus will be less on doctrine and more on how the Surpeme Court fits within the political sphere. As such it will look more like a political science course and there will be no casebook. Instead four books on the Court will be used, two each by Lucas A. Powe, Jr., (The Supreme Court and the American Elite; The Warren Court and American Politics) and Mark Tushnet (A Court Divided; In the Balance). All are available in paperback.
