This course is an update to the course Judge Alex Karlin presented in May.
The U.S. Supreme Court usually saves its most important decisions for the end of its term. This year the term is ending in July and every week we are getting new decisions on Mondays and Thursdays.
What happened with these cases? Did they lobby each other? Were they friends or enemies? Who wrote the decisions and why? Who wrote the dissents? Did they actually have underlying judicial philosophies that explain their positions, or were they just Democrats and Republicans?
Alex S. Karlin will talk about the nuts & bolts behind the scenes decision-making process that went into these decisions.
Alex S. Karlin, a member of the Supreme Court Bar, a Federal Administrative Law Judge, and native of Washington DC, will talk about the nuts & bolts behind the scenes decision-making process at the Supreme Court, sometimes abbreviated SCOTUS. You will learn that It regularly reverses its own precedents, how SCOTUS makes its decisions, how SCOTUS operates (e.g., that no cameras or recordings are allowed and that deliberations are secret).
