The Roberts Court: Theory and Practice
Exam Type: No Exam
This seminar will examine various facets of the recent jurisprudence of the U.S. Supreme Court. We will consider a variety of substantive areas, including (among others) the separation of powers, equal protection, freedom of speech, religious freedom, criminal law, and administrative law. Throughout, we will draw on both academic and practice-oriented perspectives, and we will blend close analysis of major opinions with attention to cross-cutting themes in the way the Court approaches its work and how that work is perceived.
The seminar will be co-taught by Professor Eidelson and Ian Heath Gershengorn, Chair of the Supreme Court Practice at Jenner & Block LLP and formerly Acting Solicitor General of the United States.
