30721 Key Modern U.S. Supreme Court Decisions   NEW!

Most people are aware of important US Supreme Court decisions, but few people, save those in the legal profession, understand how and why the Court reaches its conclusions. This course will explain the legal reasoning and analysis behind some of the Court’s key cases, and provide an opportunity to discuss the soundness of those discussions. Throughout, we will address the role of the Supreme Court in US government and society. 

Required: The Constitution of the United States (available for download from the National Archives). 

Recommended: Michael G. Trachtman, The Supremes’ Greatest Hits (Sterling, Third edition, 2016).
