The Supreme Court in American Life, 1789-2006

History 3802 - Summer 2019

From Marbury v. Madison in the early nineteenth century to Dredd Scott v. Sanford on the eve of the Civil War and, more recently, Roe v. Wade or Bush v. Gore, the Supreme Court--its composition, its rulings, and their legitimacy--have provoked intense, widespread legal, political, even ethical debate. This course is an historical survey of the Supreme Court's history and of the Court's broader resonance in American life and society, from the court's first session in 1789 to the present.
