The blog is designed to look at contemporary and historical Supreme Court issues at an empirical level. Issues covered in the blog range from examining Supreme Court attorneys, the Justices, and other actors in the Court to analyzing decisions and oral arguments. This outlet provides the opportunity to perform smaller scale work that is based off of larger projects as well as to answer unique questions about the Supreme Court.
