2014 Supreme Court Summer Institute Preview
May 14, 2014
Next month, the 2014 Supreme Court Summer Institute for Teachers will welcome 60 teachers from 29 states. While in Washington, DC, the teachers will learn about the operation and jurisdiction of the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as six cases from the current term. The interactive sessions will equip the teachers with exciting, student-centered strategies for teaching about the Court.
Street Law, Inc. and the Supreme Court Historical Society are proud to have the following experts join us to offer their expertise about the Court:
In addition, the teachers will explore some of the most exciting cases from this term—cases asking whether free speech “buffer zones” around abortion clinics are okay (McCullen v. Coakley), whether police can search the smartphone of someone they arrest (Riley v. California), and whether companies have a religious freedom right to decline to provide health coverage for some contraceptives (Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga v. Sebelius).
The teachers will visit the Supreme Court three times, including a non-argument session where they may hear important decisions announced.
Teaching materials from the Institute will be posted in Street Law's Resource Library later this summer.
