    Collapse The Warren Court (w/credit)

    JOIN US FOR A LIVELY DISCUSSION OF THE WARREN COURT AND ITS LEGACY

    From 1953 to 1969, the United States Supreme Court under the leadership of Chief Justice Earl Warren issued scores of opinions which had and still have a profound impact on the American legal system and American society.  Many of the opinions were controversial when issued and a few remain controversial today as Americans still argue about the proper role of the Supreme Court in American society.  Racial segregation, national security, criminal procedure, the incorporation theory, legislative apportionment, state-church relations, defamation law, the Commerce Clause, and the right of privacy were some of the issues which the Court addressed often to the chagrin of many Americans. 

     

    Topics include:

    • The Legacy of Brown
    • The Warren Court: National Security and Individual Rights
    • Emergence of the Doctrine of Unconstitutional Conditions
    • Criminal Procedure and the Warren Court's Legacy: The Bill of Rights, the Incorporation Theory and the Road Ahead
    • Political Judging
    • Removing State-Sponsored Religion from the Public Schools
    • Revolutionizing Defamation Law: New York Times v. Sullivan and Beyond
    • The Warren Court and an Expansive Commerce Clause: Whither Federalism?
