January 31, 2019 at 6:30 PM | Oakland, NJ | Oakland Public Library
Each year, the Supreme Court receives 9,000-10,000 case petitions for certiorari (consideration) and less than 1% are reviewed. The cases chosen are signficiant. In this session, participants are encouraged to consider some of the pending cases before the Court. Through an examination of texts and documents participants can, with the guidance of prompting questions, consider and discuss the contemporary political and moral concerns raised by what’s on the Supreme Court docket.
