PS 601 The Supreme Court's 2015 Term

The goal of this class is to immerse you in a sample of the Court’s cases this term. We will read the briefs parties file with the Court, cases and statutes they cite, and listen to oral argument in these cases. If the Court decides the case before the conclusion of the semester, we will read the case and discuss it. At the conclusion of the semester, we will all be experts on some of the Court’s most interesting cases of the term.
