This one unit class on the Supreme Court is designed to give 1Ls an introduction into how the Court functions, its current cases, and the debates surrounding its potential reform. Students will read scholarship and commentary about the Court as well as pending cases, and engage in a couple of written exercises that mimic what real Supreme Court law clerks undertake. Students will be evaluated based on their class participation and written exercises.
Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
