[The] Institutional Supreme Court (21695). 3 units. This course will examine the Supreme Court from the perspective of its institutional role and the behavior of its members. Since the aim is a better understanding of how constitutional law is made, our focus will be on the making, rather than on the substantive law. Readings will be drawn from current and past cases, briefs and argument transcripts as well as political science literature on judicial behavior, public opinion, the appointment process, and other topics. Students who wish to write a paper in lieu of the exam must present a proposal before Spring break and receive the instructor's permission. Enrollment limited to thirty, with preference given to first-year J.D. students. Self-scheduled examination or paper option. L. Greenhouse.
