An Honest Look at the Founding Fathers

United States Supreme Court Cases

The students will each present a concept or a case showing how the United States Supreme Court interprets the Constitution to decide whether or not an action or a law is in keeping with it.  Highly influential and even controversial cases will be discussed.
