Want to learn about the Supreme Court and some of its most influential decisions regarding civil rights, voting rights, affirmative action, free speech, gay marriage, digital privacy, and more? Take this course! Each day, we will conduct an in-depth exploration of a different landmark Supreme Court decision. Not only will we listen to real oral arguments and read short case excerpts and analyses, but also you will have the opportunity to try your hand at arguing a case and delivering a decision! Course materials will also include short video clips, news reports, and simulations that allow students to interact with key concepts. The objectives are to examine how Supreme Court decisions have shaped Americans’ civil liberties and civil rights, to learn about the legal system, and to practice basic skills of legal analysis and advocacy.
